KENAI, Alaska (AP) - An Alaska man convicted of hitting two joggers with his car has lost an appeal to suppress evidence presented during trial.
The Peninsula Clarion reports the Alaska Court of Appeals, in a decision published Friday, upheld a Superior Court decision that allowed blood test results and admissions of drug use by Jeromy Hurlburt to be used as evidence in his trial.
Hurlburt, of Soldotna, was convicted in 2013 of driving under the influence and two counts of first-degree assault for recklessly causing serious physical injury.
He was sentenced to 19 years and nine months in prison.
Before the trial, the defense moved to suppress statements made by Hurlburt and results of a blood test on the grounds that both were the result of unlawful seizures.
