Richard v. State

Facts:

The defendant appealed his conviction by a jury in the Circuit Court of Baltimore (Maryland) where a traffic ticket was imposed for exceeding posted speed limit and driving under the influence and driving with alcohol in his blood in violation of a court-ordered alcohol restriction on his driver's license. At trial the State introduced the arresting officer's testimony concerning the results of a horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test, which was administered by the arresting officer.

Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • With particular regard to expert testimony based on the application of new scientific techniques, it is recognized that prior to the admission of such testimony, it must be established that the particular scientific method is itself reliable. On occasion, the validity and reliability of a scientific technique may be so broadly and generally accepted in the scientific community that a trial court may take judicial notice of its reliability. Such is commonly the case with regard to ballistics tests, fingerprint identification, blood tests, and the like. Similarly, a trial court might take judicial notice of the invalidity or unreliability of procedures widely recognized in the scientific community as bogus or experimental. However, if the reliability of a particular technique cannot be judicially noticed, it is necessary that the reliability be demonstrated before testimony based on the technique can be introduced into evidence.
  • Scientific evidence is evidence that draws its convincing force from some principle of science, mathematics and the like. The rationale for subjecting motorists suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol to the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) derives from the scientific principle that consumption of alcohol causes nystagmus.
