Speeding in Pooler
Thomas is a financial advisor from Massachusetts. He was traveling through Savannah with his family to go to Florida for a vacation. He was pulled over by the Pooler Police on I-95 for going 91 miles per hour in a 65 m.p.h. zone. The Pooler police officer wrote in his report that Thomas stumbled out of his car, and swayed back and forth. Thomas was arrested for the following misdemeanor crimes in Pooler, Georgia:
- DUI alcohol 40-6-391(a)(5),
- DUI less safe 40-6-391(a)(1),
- Endangering a child while DUI 40-6-391(L), and
- Speeding 40-6-181
He hired me to fight his DUI charges. I requested police reports, videos, and the whole nine yards. But, of course I got very little from the government. The day before court I get the video after driving out to the police station, and meeting with the officers for a couple of hours. The police officer agreed to drop the DUI’s and the charge of Endangering a child while DUI.
Thomas plead down to Failure to use due care and Speeding. The Financial advisor got his DUI alcohol dismissed, and Endangering a child while DUI was dismissed. He plead guilty to Speeding and Failure to use due care in the Pooler Municipal Court.
Judgment: DUI reduced to Speeding in Pooler
