Judge Dismisses DUI Charges Because Border Patrol Unlawfully Held Suspect

A Vermont woman who was charged with drunken driving will walk away after a judge ruled the U.S. Border Patrol held her illegally, the Associated Press reports.

Judge Howard Van Benthuysen said Border Patrol agents did not have the right to take Meaghan Leary’s keys from her, which effectively forced her to wait 53 minutes for a state trooper to arrive, the AP wrote.

The judge said agents never gave Leary a lawful reason for holding her.
