I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask; but I did not see this posted in any recent posts... My girlfriend is going to have a DUI trial next month and I'm trying to help her as much as possible. Wondering is the worst so I was curious if what her lawyer is trying to pull together as a defense is reasonable or just reaching for anything.
Regardless of all the details, she has ALWAYS complained about bad night vision. I remember months before she was pulled over she used to drive us at night and I would complain how terrible her driving was because she couldn't even stay in a lane. Her lawyer wants her to see an eye doctor to get proof that her night vision is "night blindness". From what I've read on the Internet, it is a true medical problem, but is it something that a judge has heard a million times and will just go in one ear and out the other? I know I see her case on a personal level and I believe her and have seen her night driving. Just wondering if this could help her case or they would just laugh at it?
Thank you for any information you can provide!
