Responding to a report of a person passed out in a car, a police officer found the client unresponsive with heroin and drug paraphernalia on his lap. The client was facing a class D felony with a possible 7 year prison sentence. Ruth argued that the situation fell under the auspices of the Good Samaritan Law. This law is designed to save lives by encouraging people to seek emergency medical help if they experience or witnesses a drug overdose. The prosecutor agreed and all charges were dropped.
