Former Baseball Player On Trial in Florida for DUI

Jim Leyritz, a former player for the New York Yankees, has had his trial postponed under further questioning of a video brought to the court’s attention. The Honorable Judge Marc Gold delayed the trial until December or, at the latest, January. The video will allow Leyritz’ criminal defense attorney to argue that Leyritz was less drunk than the prosecution has charged him with which was at a .14 BAC level. 10 minutes are in question as the video shows the crash victim’s vehicle passing through an intersection before the actual crash. The legal limit for blood-alcohol content in Florida is .08.
