She was driving a Jeep Wrangler on M.L.K. Jr. Blvd in Savannah, Georgia and was pulled over by the Georgia State Patrol. She didn’t know why. The police officer later wrote in his report that she failed to maintain her lane by traveling over the center line twice with her left side tires. The officer got her out of the Jeep. He said he noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from her breath and person. The cop asked her how much she drank, and she told him two drinks. The officer asked her to do field sobriety tests. She did them. She was arrested. She agreed to take the blood test. She took it and later got her results and she was under the limit. But they found drugs in her blood from the test.
In the State Court of Chatham County Georgia, they charged her with O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(a)(4) DUI less safe (alcohol and drugs); O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(a)(2) DUI less safe (drugs); O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(a)(1) DUI less safe (alcohol); O.C.G.A. § 40-6-48 Failure to maintain lane; and O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(a)(5) Driving with unlawful blood alcohol level. After saving her driver’s license we focused on her criminal case. About a year later we negotiated a good deal with the District Attorney’s Office and she plead guilty to Failure to maintain lane, and Reckless Driving.
Judgment: Five charges down to two and No DUI
