Defense Argues PTSD Led to DUI Accident

What would normally have been an open-and-shut case in the courtroom turned out to be trickier than anticipated.

According to a police department, a young man drove the wrong way on a highway in April of last year, plowing head-on into another vehicle. As a result, the other driver lost his life immediately. The driver was charged with vehicular manslaughter and prepared to spend serious time behind bars. However, his legal team painted a picture of him in court that inspires not just pity, but respect for the former military member.

As a three-time Purple Heart award recipient, as well as a Bronze star for his work in Iraq and Afghanistan, the defendant gave years of his life to protect his country. However, he suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder, which led to his excessive drinking. The military has even issued a statement in the case, writing that it should be more thorough in examining its returning troops to screen for PTSD as well as treating the condition.

If you're facing serious DUI charges, don't wait to contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry so you can have your case reviewed by an experienced Orange County DUI attorney that can help you contest your offense.
