Appeals on wheels heads east for OWI argument

The Indiana Court of Appeals will travel east this week to hear argument in a case involving a woman convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Judges Patricia A. Riley, James S. Kirsch and Melissa S. May will hear the case of Brittanie R. Corbin v. State of Indiana, 18A-CR-00012 at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at Winchester Community High School Auditorium.

Brittanie Corbin was charged with Class A misdemeanor operating a vehicle with an alcohol concentration equivalent of 0.15 or more after she was found intoxicated in a disabled vehicle on the shoulder of I-74. Corbin told deputies she was coming from a wedding and had consumed two glasses of wine. She consented to a breath test that indicated Corbin had 0.152 grams of alcohol per 210 liters of breath.

Corbin argues the Montgomery Superior Court abused its discretion by admitting statements she made to deputies without being read her Miranda rights, as well as the results of her portable breath test. Corbin also contends that there was insufficient evidence to sustain her conviction.
