DUI? We Don't Clown Around
In an update to a case in Cobb County State Court, Marietta, Georgia, not only did I get my client's DUI case reduced, but he won't need to be on probation. He faced a DUI Less Safe charge, meaning the State didn't have evidence of his Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) being over 0.08. But the arresting officer still believed that upon leaving a party, he had driven in a manner indicating intoxication. After being stopped, my terrified client submitted to the standardized Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs). After being hired, I fly-specked the police videos and reports for issues. Finding problems, I persuaded a fair-minded prosecutor that enough doubt about the case existed to warrant a reduction in my client's charge. And, as my client is a young professional, I convinced both the prosecutor and judge to allow my client's probation sentence to terminate upon satisfaction of all agreed upon terms. Which, following my advice, they'd done before even entering a plea. Though being arrested for a DUI is no fun at all, in the end, my client had a good day in court.
