Mike Whipple Wins A Motion to Suppress In A York County OUI Case

HZW Shareholder Mike Whipple won a Motion to Suppress in York County recently.  After a testimonial hearing, the Court agreed with Attorney Whipple that the police violated his Client's due process rights by failing to properly inform the Client of the penalties for a refussal to take a breath test.  This victory ensures that the government cannot use the evidence of the breath test in any trial against the Client.  Congrats to Attorney Whipple and his Client!
