Resources for Preventing and Prosecuting Impaired Driving
This web site contains a number of print publications and other materials that may be of interest to various professional and community organizations concerned with traffic safety. These resources are freely available to everyone. You may simply download and use them. However, I offer some additional resources that contain information that I prefer to share only with prosecutors and law enforcement officers. To access these resources, you must email me (Jared Olson) and request them.

I also respond to both verbal and written inquiries from prosecutors and law enforcement regarding traffic crimes, court procedures, recent changes to law, defense challenges, etc. In addition, I help conduct legal research on a variety of issues unique to Idaho for use in legal memoranda, at hearings, trial or on appeal. These issues include:

  • Search & Seizure
  • SFSTs
  • Blood draws
  • Implied consent
  • Breath test procedures and instruments
  • Event Data Recorders

Special Note for Prosecutors

Prosecuting a DUI can be one of the most difficult cases to take to trial.  They involve all types of evidence, including eyewitness testimony, documentary and other physical evidence, scientific evidence, lay witnesses, expert witnesses, etc. Part of my job is to help ease the burden of Idaho prosecutors and I am available for all type of trial preparation.  Whether it is predicate questions, case review, preparing briefs or even second chairing your trial, I am happy to help. For more information on the resources available to you, select the Trial Preparation link in the top menu.
