Judge denies Jeff Wood's motion for reconsideration
EAU CLAIRE (WAOW)- An Eau Claire County judge denied a motion from a local lawmaker who wanted the court to reconsider a drunk driving conviction.
State Representative Jeff Wood's attorney was in Eau ClaireCounty court Thursday. He asked the judge to take another look at Wood's conviction from 18 years ago. At the heart of it was Wood's refusal to take a breathalyzer or blood test back then. The judge denied the motion.
Earlier this week, Wood was in a Columbia County courtroom. His attorney in that case is asking the judge to suppress evidence from an arrest last year. The judge will give a ruling in that case later this year.
