State v. M.B. – DUI Refusal & Striking a pedestrian

After M.B.'s car struck a woman in the parking lot of a bar, she fell out of the driver's seat of vehicle to find that her car had pinned the woman against another car.  M.B. told witnesses that she wasn't driving, that a man had been driving her car, but made her switch seats with her after he collided with the woman.  M.B. appeared to be impaired by alcohol, but begged the officer to investigate the driver.  The officer refused to investigate whether there was another driver involved in the accident.  At trial, Mr. Ryczek uncovered several inconsistencies in the witnesses' statements, and ultimately the judge found reasonable doubt as to whether M.B. ever drove the car.  M.B. was found not guilty of DUI
