Both the prosecution and the defense made their opening statements in the Jackson aggravated murder case in which Cory Jackson is accused of being responsible for the death of Paul Nauman.
According to the prosecution, Jackson was guilty of causing a drunk driving accident that lead to the death of Nauman. The evidence for the drunk driving, according to the prosecution is available from the fact that the red truck Jackson was driving was reported to have been weaving on the road and the BAC levels, which were placed at 0.181 from a blood test.
Hiding in the Farmland
The prosecution also stated that Jackson crossed the yellow line forcing Nauman to take evasive action that lead to his death. They further state that Jackson moved away from the accident scene and tried to hide in the surrounding cornfields. The defense has disagreed with this interpretation of the evidence and suggests a different scenario.
If he wanted to pick vegetables, he chose the wrong time to do so. He should have stuck around and told the truth to the police and everyone else. Then again, he should not have been driving inebriated in the first place.
While the court will decide on the actual merits of this case, those accused of causing drunk driving accidents should consult a drunk driving accident lawyer as soon as possible to defend them. This is because any evidence that law enforcement collects can be interpreted in different ways and a drunk driving accident attorney will be able to present the other interpretation as well. By providing the court with alternative versions of events, the drunk driving accident attorneys will be able to try and convince the courts that the actual cause of the accident could have been something else instead of the drunk driver.
Each drunk driving accident is different and drunk driving accident lawyers will take the time and effort to examine all the evidence collected and ensure that they are admissible in court against you. This can help reduce the charge against you or lessen the quantum of penalty.
