GA: Minor didn’t consent to DUI blood draw

The trial court’s finding that a minor’s consent to a blood draw was invalid is affirmed on appeal. The trooper signed the consent form for him. In the Interest of C.W., 2017 Ga. App. LEXIS 329 (June 28, 2017).*

Late disclosure of a government’s expert resulted in a continuance and gave it time to get another DNA sample and test done linking defendant to a sex crime. This was not an abuse of discretion considering the trial court’s authority to manage a case. Bernal v. United States, 2017 D.C. App. LEXIS 145 (June 29, 2017).*
