By the judge Mr.Rush is not guilty and Karen Spokes did violate the street laws.
After defense and prosecution make their closing statements , the judge leaves the room to decide. The defendant Rush is found not guilty. The court did not have sufficient evidence in order to charge him. - BR
Mr.Rush was in fact not under the influence,says Austin Mires the Bac tester that tested Mr. Rush’s alcohol level. Mr.Rush claimed that he smelt of alcohol due to the party he attended the night before. Mr. Rush alcohol level came back as 0% alcohol in his body.
There was a red solo cup which smelt like alcohol found in Rush’s vehicle. Prosecution is using this cup as evidence to convict him. Rush claims the cup was his fathers. - BR
