Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:DUI and all related charges were dismissed.
Description:Client was charged with DUI. After being arrested the client submitted to the state administered breath test. The result was over the legal limit in Georgia. Client had a commercial driver's license and pleading to the DUI would have suspended his driver's license for one year and significantly impaired his ability to support his family. After hearing our Motion to Suppress the breath test, the judge held that the breath test would not be admissable at trial because my client was incorrectly advised of his implied consent rights by the arresting officer. The prosecution dismissed all charges after deciding they did not have enough evidence to prosecute the case.
