Woodstock Traffic Ticket Lawyer: Lil Twist Speeding:  In July, 2013, Lil Twist was arrested for DUI; however, he had a good lawyer who got that charge dismissed.  The media claims that Lil Twist stumbled, swayed and failed the standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs).  And he admitted smoking marijuana, so case closed.  The reality is that the SFSTs are scientifically designed to determine whether the subject probably has a blood alcohol level above the legal limit.  No where in the SFST validation studies were any determinations of probability of impairment by marijuana.  Indeed, the SFSTs do not directly demonstrate an impairment by alcohol, the substance for which they were designed.

Woodstock Traffic Ticket Lawyer: Lil Twist Speeding: Lil Twist was originally stopped for speeding 69 mph in a 30 mph zone.  Speeding is not a clue of impaired driving.  Law enforcement saw a marijuana blunt and smelled marijuana.  They claimed Lil Twist had bloodshot eyes and his speech was “deliberate and lethargic.”  Of course, bloodshot eyes are no longer a recognized cue for impairment by alcohol.

Woodstock Traffic Ticket Lawyer: Lil Twist Speeding:  The prosecution correctly dismissed the DUI by Marijuana charge because the blood sample did not show a level sufficient to impair.  The field sobriety tests had no relevance to marijuana.  And the lab tech could not argue his blood contained sufficient marijuana to impair his driving.  Lil Twist ended up being convicted of simple marijuana possession, speeding and failure to stop for a traffic control device.
