March 23, 2013

A county employee’s law student daughter who allegedly received special treatment last summer when she was charged with DWI is seeking a change of venue for her trial and suppression of the probable cause for the search warrant for her blood.

Attorneys representing Camille Dyer Matthews claim that the blood evidence should not be admitted because the state trooper who made the traffic stop did not have probable cause to request the “blood warrant.” The trooper testified that Matthews smelled strongly of alcohol when he pulled her over for speeding, swerving slightly and following too closely behind the vehicle in front of her. He obtained the blood warrant after she refused field sobriety tests.
