Criminal Law: Blood Draw-Warrantless-Assault Case


Where a defendant found guilty of second-degree assault challenged the trial court’s refusal to suppress evidence and testimony related to a warrantless blood draw, there were no exigent circumstances presented to justify the warrantless search, so the judgment is reversed and remanded for a new trial since the search was also not justified by implied consent laws.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
