WV DUI Attorney Jason Glass Appears Before State Supreme Court

DUI Attorney Jason Glass appeared this morning before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals in the case of Mark Thompson v. West Virginia DMV.

The case centered around a Second Offense DUI arrest.  Mr. Thompson entered a no contest plea in Berkeley County Magistrate Court and the WV DMV subsequently revoked his license without affording him a hearing on his case.

According to West Virginia law, a no contest plea does not constitute a conviction.  Therefore, the DMV has no conviction to base a revocation on and must afford the individual a chance to be heard at a hearing prior to revoking their license.

The DMV is mistakenly relying on another statute, dealing with establishing the test and lock program in West Virginia, claiming that gives them the authority to automatically revoke a person’s license, without a hearing, if they are a subsequent offender and enter a no contest plea.

This case can potentially effect hundreds of people accused of DUI in West Virginia.  While we are cautiously optimistic on the outcome, stay tuned in the coming months for the official decision.

Forensic Tests Are Flawed

The Justice Department has found that defendants were left uninformed after flaws were found in the forensic testing that was instrumental in charging or convicting them of crimes.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/convicted-defendants-left-uninformed-of-forensic-flaws-found-by-justice-dept/2012/04/16/gIQAWTcgMT_story.html?wprss=rss_crime.

This illustrates why it is so important for criminal defense attorneys to take the time and learn the science behind these tests and the correct testing procedures and protocol. These flaws are not limited to just DNA tests or hair sample analysis, but are prevalent as well in breath and blood testing in DUI cases.

This is where attorney Jason Glass has a leg up on some of the other criminal defense attorneys in West Virginia. Mr. Glass has a bachelor’s degree in biology and thus has an understanding of the science and procedure used in many forensic tests. During his undergraduate years, Mr. Glass focused on molecular biology, and recombinant DNA technology in specific. He has conducted several DNA tests, some of the processes similar to those used by forensic labs. Mr. Glass is also 1 of only 2 attorneys in the entire state to receive training on the Intoximeter EC/IR II, the breath machine used in the state of West Virginia.

So if your case involves blood testing, breath testing, or any other type of forensic analysis, contact Jason Glass today. He’s the CLEAR choice for criminal defense in West Virginia.
