Q: Attorney Tully, I am charged with refusing to take a Breathalyzer. A police car dashboard camera video recorded my arrest. Does the video control the case?
A: No. Police car dashboard camera videos can help in deciding a case. However, the Judge still must decide the case, not the camera. Recently a State Trooper testified he gave a Defendant field sobriety tests. The dashboard camera showed he did not. The Court still ruled against the driver. The Court found there was enough other evidence to rule against the driver and the officer’s error was an unintentional one. Call me for a free meeting.
