When the State brought in their expert witness from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in rebuttal, Ashley was able to effectively cross examine him about the limitations inherent in Georgia's breath testing program. Ashley was able to secure a Not Guilty on all counts, keeping the jury out for only 25 minutes in deliberation.
