NEW: Prosecutors Drop DUI Charges Against Watson

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

 

Robert Watson will not be charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana as Connecticut prosecutors have announced that they will not pursue a case against the former House Minority Leader.

According to reports, Watson’s attorney, Charles Tiernan, made a pretrial request to the courts that a urine test be ruled inadmissible and when that motion was approved, the state decided it would drop the case.

Tiernan has said the urine tests wouldn’t have proven Warson was over the legal driving limit when he was arrested in April of 2011 and that the state failed to give him the results of that test within 24 hours, as is state law.

The drug charges were also dismissed as Watson applied for and completed a drug education program.
