Disclosure of urine test in DWI case

Disclosure of urine test in DUI case did not violate Data Practices Act

Defendant was convicted of misdemeanor driving while impaired and driving after cancellation in Nobles County, State of Minnesota.  Defendant argued that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress.  The Minnesota Court of Appeal concluded that because the results of defendant’s urine test was validly disclosed to the trial court by law enforcement for law enforcement purposes in the search warrant application, defendant’s claim of a violation of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act was without merit.  Affirmed.

State v. Cruz, A19-0344, Nobles County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
