SLED server of DUI evidence back up and running

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The State Law Enforcement Division says it has finished restoring all the data on drunken driving arrests to the agency's servers without losing any files.

SLED's Implied Consent servers went down on July 5 after a lightning strike, blocking access to the database of suspects' Breathalyzer tests for prosecutors and defense attorneys.

SLED spokesman Thom Berry said Wednesday that all the files are back on the server. Some of the cases went back as far as 22 years.

Some driving under the influence cases were delayed while the database was down because lawyers could not access the information.
