State of Georgia V. A.W.
Fulton County State Court
Our client was arrest in Johns Creek for failure to maintain lane and DUI less safe. Her case originated in the Johns Creek Municipal Court. We transferred the case Fulton County Municipal Court when we were unable to negotiate a non-DUI disposition. You can transfer any DUI case originating in a Probate or Municipal Court in Georgia to a State or Superior Court with the filing of a demand for a jury trial. Fulton County has a long slow process through which they brought formal charges to our client. This process left our client in limbo for more than three years awaiting the outcome of her DUI charge. We filled a motion to have this case two years after her initial arrest but the state continued to drag their feet. More than a year later following our first unsuccessful attempt to have this case dismissed, we proceeded on with a motion hearing. At the hearing, we were successful and the entirety of our client’s case was dismissed based upon a violation of her right to a speedy trial.
