Rosemary Lehmberg Removal Trial Begins


Better late than never, right?!?



Highlights:
The trial started with very compelling testimony -- both from witnesses and officers who all claim they did not know initially that Lehmberg was behind the wheel of the car swerving all over Highway 620.

The first witness says he called 911 when he saw Lehmberg on his way home from a high school baseball game the night April 12. He says she was swerving across the road at speeds of up to 55 miles per hour, and riding in the shoulder, so much so he thought she might turn.

The second witness was driving home from the office that night when Lehmberg's car cut him off, so he was compelled to call the police. He said he followed her after she pulled over on the side of the road and waited for the sheriff's deputy to arrive.

The deputies on the scene also testified Monday morning, saying that Lehmberg was carefully removing documents from her purse. One deputy later came to find out a bottle of vodka was under it.

Lehmberg failed all of the officer's sobriety tests and refused a breathalyzer test. A blood test later showed her blood-alcohol content was almost three times the legal limit.
