Acknowledgments
While common in occurrence, the evidence needed to prove guilt in impaired-driving cases is complex, often requiring expert testimony to assist the trier-of-fact indetermining what happened. As in any profession, those who work in it sometimes takefor granted the complex nature of our legal system and presume others understand it aswe do, which oftentimes is not the case. To fill that void, this publication provides anoverview of the criminal justice system for people who will likely encounter it throughtheir roles as expert witnesses.This guide is the result of a collaborative effort on the part of the following:Debra Whitcomb, Director of Grant Programs and Development, National DistrictAttorneys Association; Marcia Cunningham, Director, National District AttorneysAssociation’s National Traffic Law Center; Joanne Michaels, Senior Attorney, NationalDistrict Attorneys Association’s National Traffic Law Center; L. R. “Bob” Jacob, of theInstitute of Police Technology and Management (IPTM), Jacksonville, Florida; andGeorge Dentes, former four-term District Attorney for Tompkins County, New York (1989-2005). Sadly, Mr. Dentes died unexpectedly on October 31, 2006, just steps awayfrom his office at the New York Prosecutors Training Institute.
