State of Georgia V. D.B.
Fulton County State Court (originally Johns Creek Municipal Court)
Our client was arrest in Johns Creek, GA, and charged with DUI less safe. She was involved in an accident in a parking lot. Following the incident, the police arrived on the scene to investigate the accident. The officer detected the odor of alcohol on our client’s person result in him asking her to consent to a field sobriety test, which she did. The arresting officer observed 6 of 6 clues that our client was intoxicated. Following the conclusion of the field sobriety test the arresting officer prompted our client to consent to a breath test, however, she denied his request and was subsequently arrested for DUI.
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. however, we fought hard in this case, and we attempted to negotiate our client’s charges to a lesser charge. However, that attempt was unsuccessful, so we proceeded to a motions hearing. At the hearing, we were successful argued that the length of this case had violated the constitutional right our client has to a speedy trial. The court granted our motion to have the case dismissed based on this argument and the entirety of our client’s case was dismissed based upon a violation of her right to a speedy trial.
