August 25, 2009 – La Crosse County. Today Badger Lawyer defended a client charged with felony substantial battery and disorderly conduct arising out of a domestic situation. The significant facts were that both the defendant and the alleged victim had been drinking, and the alleged victim drank until she blacked out. There were a number of evidentiary issues including hotly contested hearsay issues, issues with chemical testing, and how to judge the credibility of the witnesses. A SANE nurse testified and was cross examined by Attorney Doerfler. The jury deliberated about 15 minutes and returned not guilty verdicts on both counts.
