Prescription Drug DUI
Prescription Drug DUI – NOT GUILTY
Client charged with DUI involving the prescription drug Valium. Client also had Diabetes and believed that it was an episode of Hypoglycemia that was affecting him and not the drug. While Valium was found in his system, we presented an expert witness to show that the client was taking the drug as prescribed and that the amount found in his body was consistent with normal prescribed therapeutic levels of the drugs. The expert also testified about tolerance levels and how a diabetic episode could look similar to being under the influence of a drug.
