Case 1: DUI PDF Print E-mail
My client had been drinking heavily at a restaurant when he went out to his car where he claimed he was waiting for one of the employees to give him a ride home. Witnesses had called police and said that a man who they believed was drunk was driving around in the parking lot. When police arrived, they found my client inside the car with the keys in his pocket and parked crooked in the parking lot. The client failed the field sobriety tests and blew over a .2.

When the client came to me, he was adamant that he wasn’t driving. I explained to him under Georgia law you didn’t have to be driving to be charged with DUI, but that you only had to be in a position where you have the ability to drive. My client had several prior DUI’s and refused to take any deal. I quickly started negotiating with the prosecutor and learned the officer had moved to South Georgia. I then told the prosecutor that I was going to file a number of motions challenging every aspect of the stop and investigation. The prosecutor reluctantly agreed to drop the charge to reckless driving saving my client’s license.
