Jury Finds Huff Not Guilty of DUII

EUGENE, Ore. — A Lane County jury found Josh Huff not guilty of DUII Wednesday.

The decision came early Thursday evening after just more than a day of testimony in the case.

The Duck football player was accused of driving while high on marijuana.

While deliberating, the jury looked at four issues:

Did the crime happen in Eugene?

Did it happen on March 3?

Was Huff driving a car on public property?

And, was he driving under the influence of intoxicants?

The city had to prove all of that and get a unanimous decision for his conviction.

Jurors heard from the arresting officers Wednesday. On Thursday two toxicologists took the stand to explain to separate and conflicting toxicology reports. Huff himself testified.

Just after 5 p.m., the judge said the jury reached a verdict. Before the verdict was read, the judge had found Huff not guilty for speeding and fined him for an invalid license.

    It would be nice to have some police officers who actually went after real criminals instead of profiling people! After all these so-called officers took an oath to uphold the law not create their own! But then in the past 30 years or so law enforcements motto has always been. “Do as we say not as we do”

    I guessing he wasn’t Huffing Marijuana!
