Juvenile Court: DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving

This 16-year old client was stopped in Sandy Springs after midnight for driving without headlights. She was arrested for DUI and submitted to a breath test, blowing 0.111 (the limit for under 21 drivers being 0.02). Two motion hearings were held in Fulton County Juvenile Court, and the case was set for an adjudication hearing (trial). We filed one last motion claiming the Implied Consent Law violated a child’s rights under the Juvenile Code; and after 18 months of vigorous defense, the ADA finally agreed to drop the DUI charge, and she admitted to Reckless Driving.
