You know they’ve lost a father, they’ve lost a husband and Mr. Myers was clearly remorseful for what occurred.” 15:05:41 CLIP #6451 DAVID MOSLEY 14:59:33 “What happened was the procedurals that would normally be undertaken by the police to obtain a blood draw didn’t happen in a way that’s designated by statute so this caused problems in proof as to levels of intoxication that they would’ve claimed. ” 14:59:44 MYERS WAS LOOKING AT CLOSE TO 20 YEARS IN PRISON IF HE WAS FOUND GUILTY OF THE B- FELONIES. HE WILL NOW BE PLACED ON PROBATION FOR A YEAR AND SUBJECT TO DRUG AND ALCOHOL SCREENINGS. LIVE AT THE CLARK COUNTY COURTHOUSE, ANNA-LYSA GAYLE W-L-K-Y NEWS.
