US Forest Service

Case Summary:
The defendant was charged with Reckless Driving and Reckless Endangering x 2. The allegation made by the government was that the defendant was driving aggressively and repeatedly cutting off a US Forest Service vehicle (with two occupants inside), over a sustained period of time, on a rural highway. The officers decided to make an enforcement stop on the defendant and called the Oregon State Police for assistance. A State Trooper arrived and cited the defendant for the above counts. The jury acquitted the defendant of all charges.

Attorney Comments:
"The amount of tainted and/or false evidence produced by the officers in this case was incredible. At trial we were able to completely destroy the credibility of all 3 officer witnesses. The lead officer's testimony completely contradicted video evidence. The State deliberately attempted to avoid showing the jury this video evidence. The lead officer also strategically turned his body camera off and on, as to avoid recording his conversations about the incident with the other officers. The other two officers (one Forest Service officer and one Oregon State Trooper), both testified that they had written their reports independent of reading or referencing the lead officer's report. However, that was clearly false. There was basically cut and pasting going on and information appearing in the Trooper's report that could have only been obtained by the Trooper having read the previous reports. My client chose to testify in his defense and denied all of the allegations that the government witnesses were making against him. The jury deliberated less than 20 minutes and returned with a not guilty verdict on all counts."
