When dealing with DUI charges that go to court, there will often be a Crime Lab Toxicologist who will testify. Their job is to account for the levels of alcohol or drugs within the drivers system at the time of the arrest or accident. This case however addresses the arrest of well-known and experienced toxicologist who was arrested last month for driving while intoxicated. Lynn Kurtz was allegedly caught under the influence while driving his vehicle, though if he is convicted his charges will be minimal because it his first offense. Kurtz is facing two misdemeanor charges because of his DUI and also for rolling through a stop sign. The Attorney General’s Office claims that while this investigation is pending he will continue working for their crime lab.
The Police County Sheriff that originally pulled him over states that Kurtz acknowledged that he probably had too much to drink that night, and also notes there was a cup of Miller Lite on his front car seat as well. Lynn Kurtz sobriety tests registered his BAC levels to be 0.160 and his second test came to 0.153. The Sheriff’s Department acknowledges how helpful Kurtz has been with their cases in the past, and state that he was well respected in their offices. Kurtz has been a useful tool in many of the cases that this town has had, such as explaining statistics to alcohol levels in the body and testifying against those who had high BAC levels. The news reports that his next trial will be held on August 15, and until then he will remain at work for the crime labs helping fight those convicted of DUI’s. DUI charges can be an unfortunate mark on your record, so when facing this type of conviction having the proper legal counsel on your side is crucial.
