Ernest is a Clinical Professor of Pharmacy and Psychiatry. He was driving in Effingham County when he crashed his car, hit his head, and was knocked out unconscious. When he awoke he drove and was pulled over and then was arrested by the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office for DUI less safe (refusal), Hit and run, Open container, and Drugs not in original container. He refused to do Field Sobriety tests, and he refused to take a breath test. But, he asked the Effingham police to give him a blood test. They did not. What’s more startling is that the police officer wrote in his report that he asked my client to take a blood test, and my client refused. The officer also wrote in his DUI report that my client was in and out of consciousness in the back seat of the police car. The Effingham County police never called for Medical help to have my client checked out. He had received a head injury and couldn’t remember what happened.
DUI Case Result in Effingham County
The Solicitor in Effingham County eventually offered my client a deal. It wasn’t easy to get. I had to show him our hand, and explain our position in the case. And then, after a long time, and much consideration, the Solicitor agreed to dismiss the DUI. In the Effingham County State Court he plead guilty to Driver to use due care – 40-6-241, and Hit and run. The charges of Drugs not in original container and Open container were Nolle prossed (dismissed).
