Middleburg resident, Milton Lee Minier, was sentenced to 10 years in the Florida State Prison. He plead guilty to the charge of Florida DUI (Driving Under the Influence) Manslaughter as part of a plea deal with the Clay County State Attorney’s Office. According to the Florida Times Union (Jacksonville.com):
“Police said Minier drove into a cement wall in the 7900 block of Old Kings Road in the early morning hours of March 6, killing his passenger, 21-year-old Tiffany Manzano of Jacksonville. A sample of Minier’s blood taken shortly after the crash revealed he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.185 percent, more than twice the legal limit, his arrest report said.”
In Clay County, the legal limit is a BAC of 0.08 percent or below. This blood-alcohol level is used as evidence in Clay County Florida DUI trials against the Defendant to help prosecutors prove the crime of Driving Under the Influence. It is important to investigate the DUI case and the circumstances surrounding the blood draw when defending a DUI charge. There could be a problem with the blood draw or the manner in which it was obtained.
