Ukiah Woman Convicted of DUI California DOJ criminalists in Eureka and Sacramento assisted with case

UKIAH – On June 12, 2019 a Mendocino County Superior Court jury found a Ukiah woman guilty of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Deborah Lynn Cloud, 60, was convicted of three misdemeanor counts including driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with a blood alcohol of .08 or greater, and driving under the combined influence of drugs and alcohol.

Cloud was involved in a motorcycle collision.  Ninety minutes after the crash her blood alcohol was .079. It was scientifically asserted that the defendant's blood alcohol would have been about .109 at the time of her driving. Forensic testing further revealed that the defendant also had methamphetamine, diazepam (Valium), and Tramadol, an opiate, in her bloodstream at the time of driving.

The investigating law enforcement agencies were the Ukiah Police Department and the California Department of Justice forensic crime laboratories in Eureka and Sacramento.

“Counties throughout the state rely on the remarkable forensic work of California Department of Justice criminalists, said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “These scientists make or break cases by processing and evaluating evidence.  Investigations and prosecutions simply wouldn’t move forward without their knowledge and work.”
