MONCTON, N.B. - A New Brunswick man charged with drunk driving causing the death of a 14-year-old girl has been found not guilty.
The judge made the ruling today after the Crown rested its case without calling any evidence in the case involving 20-year-old Alexander Beers.
Crown prosecutor Jeff Mockler says he no longer had a viable case against Beers after blood alcohol samples taken the night of the July 2007 crash were ruled inadmissable.
Family members of the victim, Satara Steeves, stormed out of the Moncton courtroom following the ruling, saying they have lost faith in the justice system.
During the trial, Beers said he had consumed alcohol that night but did not feel impaired.
