Municipal Court of Atlanta: Underage DUI – DUI Dismissed

Underage client was detained at an intersection in Atlanta because her intoxicated passenger was causing a disturbance. The disturbance drew the attention of a City of Atlanta police officer who was nearby working  the scene of an unrelated car accident. The officer approached our client, searched her car and immediately placed her under arrest. The officer failed to complete a DUI investigation and failed to read our client Georgia’s Implied Consent notice. Client was never offered the opportunity to take a chemical test and was immediately transported to the jail. The DUI was dismissed and we were able to successfully resolve her case with a plea to a minor traffic offense, a small fine, and community service hours.
