The district attorney in Wake County, North Carolina, has dismissed 104 DWI cases and another 71 traffic-related offenses after a sheriff’s deputy was found to have lied on the stand.
Local media outlets said District Attorney Lorrin Freeman took the action after District Court Judge Jacqueline Brewer disqualified Deputy Robert Davis, a member of the sheriff’s DWI Task Force, as a witness. Brewer found that Davis had lied in at least three cases.
In one instance, a woman whom Davis arrested in August 2014 made the case that the deputy had not allowed her to make her phone call or to take a breathalyzer test. At a hearing on that case, Davis denied her claims.
Sheriff Donnie Harrison said Davis, who was an 18-year-veteran of the sheriff’s office, was fired.
