Fossella's DWI case postponed again
Vito Fossella is still refusing to take responsibility for his drunk driving and his lawyers have had his court case pushed back from this week to October. Despite failing three field sobriety and breathalyzer tests, Fossella is fighting his arrest and claiming error on the part of the breathalyzer machines and maintenance. Records of those machines are at the front of his cases postponement;
Rep. Vito Fossella's DWI trial in Alexandria, Va., has been postponed a second time, because his attorney claimed the state agency that overseas breathalyzer tests did not provide the defense with sufficient documents to precede with their case.
Of course this has little significance other than delaying his case and possibly forcing a humiliating early retirement had he been found gulty before the end of his term. A conviction now or in October will still be an appropriate ending to Fossella's fiasco.
