Woman had right to be drunk on her front steps -Iowa Supreme Court

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 06/13/2015 - 03:51
Patience Paye was arrested in June 2013 after stepping out of her house to talk with a police officer, while her alleged attacker told another officer they frequently fought and he had refused to give her car keys because she was drunk and did not have a driver's license, the court's opinion said. Paye twice failed breathalyzer tests, recording a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit for driving, and was arrested for public intoxication, a misdemeanor. Paye argued that her front steps were not a public space under Iowa law, but was convicted in a bench trial and raised the same issue on appeal.
