Idaho v. WulffAnnotate this Case
The State appealed a district court's grant of Micah Wulff's motion to suppress evidence obtained in a warrantless blood draw. The draw took place after Wulff was in custody for driving under the influence. The district court held that the United States Supreme Court's holding in "Missouri v. McNeely," suggested that warrantless blood draws are not always permitted under Idaho's implied consent statute. The State argued that McNeely was limited to the exigent circumstances exception to the warrant requirement and Idaho's implied consent statute is a valid exception to the warrant requirement. Finding no reversible error, the Idaho Supreme Court affirmed the district court.
