    Verdicts and Settlements:

    • State v. Doig- A 2008 case in Upshur County Magistrate Court before Magistrate Mike Coffman. Ms. Doig was pulled over for not having her headlights on. After being pulled over by Officer Loudin of the Buckhannon City Police Department, she was put through a series of field sobriety tests (FST's) and a portable breath test (PBT). Officer Loudin claimed that Ms. Doig failed the horizontal gaze nystagmus test (HGN) and the PBT while she passed the walk and turn (WAT) and one leg stand (OLS). Dr. Joseph Citron, was retained by my office to review the case and write an expert opinion letter. According to his review of the discovery materials, Dr. Citron was of the opinion that the only test that Ms. Doig was alleged to have failed, the HGN, was not properly scored and administered by Officer Loudin. Dr. Citron's opinion on the HGN coupled with the fact that the PBT was not properly administered, helped defeat both of the FST's that Officer Loudin claimed Ms. Doig failed. A motion to dismiss was filed contending that Officer Loudin did not have probable cause to arrest Ms. Doig. Upon reviewing the defense motion and Dr. Citron's opinion letter, the prosecuting attorney conceded that there was not enough evidence left to amount to probable cause and agreed to dismiss the case., 2009
    • State of West Virginia v. C. Rasmussen-  Ms. Rasmussen was charged with 2nd offense DUI following a traffic stop. She allegedly failed field sobriety tests and the breath test with a result of .091. At trial evidence was presented of Ms. Rasmussen's medical history, which included significant back, spinal, and head injuries, as well as severe asthma and reflux, all of which combined to invalidate all of the results of all of the tests in the minds of the jurors. Expert consultant Joseph Citron was the defense medical expert. The jury deliberated for about 40 minutes before returning a unanimous Not Guilty verdict., 2009
