James “Skip” Sullivan represented a driver charged with a DUI in Atlanta, where his client ran a red light and almost collided with another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle called police and followed our client, who stopped in front of an Atlanta Police precinct. A DUI investigation was conducted by an Atlanta police officer, where the officer observed major damage to our client’s car. Our client could not recall how the damage got there or when it happened. Our client was arrested and charged with DUI. Mr. Sullivan decided to move the DUI case out of Atlanta Municipal Court over to Fulton County State Court for a jury trial. Mr. Sullivan believed our client’s due process rights were violated as our client was never read the Georgia Implied Consent Notice, nor was he afforded the opportunity to submit to a chemical test. The prosecutor in Fulton County State Court agreed and dismissed the DUI charge in exchange for a plea to Reckless Driving.
