Proceedings below: Following a jury trial, Appellant was convicted in county court.  The district court reversed on appeal based on Birchfield v. North Dakota, 136 S.Ct. 2160 (2016).

Issues: The district court erred by vacating Hatfield’s DUI conviction without considering whether Hatfield’s blood draw was voluntary or whether the good-faith exception to the exclusionary rule applied.
