Attached is the close-out memo of the SAO which dropped the DUI charges against former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning's wife.
We'll leave it to the DUI mavens to debate the particulars of the case. This is way outside of our milieu.
The question is whether this case, with conflicting evidence at best, was treated like the hundreds (thousands?) of other DUIs that were similarly situated? Over the past decades we've tried a few DUIs to jury with facts much worse than this for the state and the schlepper ASA in court always had the same mournful song:"My supervisor won't let me do anything other than try the case." So, is this case different? A more reasonable officer? A new attitude at the SAO?
