Arrested for DUI
Katie is a health care professional. She had never been arrested in her life. She was driving a silver BMW on Martin Luther King Blvd. in Savannah, Georgia. She got pulled over by the Georgia State Patrol for Failure to maintain lane.
The police officer asked her how much she drank that evening. She admitted to drinking a couple of drinks earlier. The officer asked her to do field sobriety tests. She tried to do all three: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Walk and Turn, and One leg stand. She failed those. She was arrested for DUI less safe. At the police station she blew a .063 in the Intoxilyzer 5000 (Georgia’s breath test.)
Facts unable to support a conviction
In court I was able to get the District Attorney to recognize that this was not a good case. The prosecutor agreed to drop the DUI because the facts were unable to support a conviction. Katie plead guilty to failure to maintain lane and that was it. She got her DUI dismissed because the facts were not able to support a conviction in the Recorder’s Court of Chatham County, Savannah, Georgia.
