Your Driver’s License In A DUI Case Involving A Blood Test
Posted by Ben Sessions | | DUI / DWI
If you were arrested for DUI in Georgia and you submitted to a blood test in response to the reading of the implied consent warning, you will not face a pre-trial suspension of a your driver’s license through the Georgia administrative license suspension process most likely. Because the officer does not know the results of the blood test when you are arrested, he cannot file a sworn report stating that the result of the chemical/blood test produced results above the legal limit. Generally, State blood tests conducted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations are not finalized or reported back to law enforcement for approximately 3 months, so if the officer is going to attempt to suspend your driver’s license through the administrative license suspension process, he/she will need to file a DDS 1205-S, which is a supplemental report used in blood test cases.
