It may be some good luck for you. If they lost the evidence needed to prosecute, they may have to drop the charges. Of course, if there is other evidence they can use sufficient to prosecute, they may still go forward. But if the evidence lost was the results of any breathalyzer or blood alcohol tests that were done, it is quite likely that the charges will be dropped.

In some cases, the prosecutors may try to bluff their way into a plea bargain. You may want to make sure you are advised by an attorney on the strength of the case before accepting any plea bargain.

I hope this helps!
