On Monday, October 2, at approximately 12:20 in the morning, Marshall County Officer Brouyette initiated a traffic stop in the area of US 31 and Veterans Parkway on a 1995 Pontiac passenger car. During the traffic stop, the driver, 44 year old Casey S. Sills of Osceola was believed to be operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
Ms. Sills was taken for a certified chemical test that determined her blood alcohol content to be two times the legal limit. Casey Sills was then transported to the Marshall County Jail where she was lodged on preliminary charges for Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
