State of Georgia v. H.S.
Gwinnett County State Court
There are 2 valuable lessons to be learned from this case: (1) No good deed goes unpunished, and (2) All is well that ends well. Our client was at home asleep when she received a call from a friend that had been arrested for driving on a suspended license. Her friend asked that our client drive to the scene of the arrest and get her car so it would not be towed. When our client arrived at the scene, she was immediately greeted by an officer that smelled alcohol on her breath and began questioning her about drinking. Our client submitted to field sobriety tests and a state-administered breath test that produced a .090 result. We transferred the case from the Gwinnett County Recorder’s Court to the State Court when the State was only willing to offer our client a plea to the DUI charge. Prior to trial, we successfully obtained a dismissal of the DUI charge in exchange for a nolo contendere plea to reckless driving. Our client suffered no license suspension, no time in jail, and no DUI on her criminal record.
