Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:Not Guilty all counts of DUI
Description:Defendant was in Atlanta on business and made an illegal u-turn in Buckhead. He was stopped by a DUI task force officer on the State Patrol. Defendant failed field sobriety according to the officer and blew a.122 on the Intox 5000. We were unable to get the case reduced to a reckless. With client's career on the line, we tried the case to a jury in Fulton State Court. The officer previously testified at an Administrative hearing and I was able to point out some inconsistencies in his testimony. Further, Defendant looked solid on video. The officer is now in charge of the breath machines in Metro Atlanta. I was able to use his knowledge and lack thereof to point out problems with the test. Finally, an expert witness pointed out some deficiencies in breath testing. The jury returned a not guilty verdict in 8 minutes. It was a great victory since my client's career was saved.
