S-11-0597, State v. Chad N. Sorensen (Appellant)
Box Butte County, Judge Leo Dobrovolny
Attorneys: Bell Island (Appellant) --- Kimberly A. Klein (Attorney General’s Office)
Criminal: DUI, 2nd offense, over .15 BAC
Proceedings below: Appellant was found guilty and sentenced to 24 months probation with revocation of his license for one year. The district court affirmed.
Issues: The county court erred in admitting the Certificate of Blood Sample Drawn rather than requiring the state to call as a witness the nurse who drew the blood as it violated Appellant’s right to confront witnesses.
