In a must win situation to avoid a DUI conviction in Columbus, Georgia, James “Skip” Sullivan – partner with Chestney & Sullivan Law Firm, was able to successfully navigate an administrative license suspension action and avoid a DUI conviction for his client. Our client was stopped for speeding by a Georgia State Patrol Trooper in Muscogee County, Georgia. A DUI investigation followed where our client did not perform well. He was arrested and refused the state breath test after the implied consent notice was read. An administrative license suspension action was initiated by the trooper, were our client faced a one year suspension of his Georgia driving privileges for refusing the state breath test. There is no permit if his license was suspended. Mr. Sullivan was able to avoid the one year suspension of his client’s driving privileges and the trooper was not going to get in the way of negotiations with the prosecution. We developed a plan for our client to but him in the best possible light for negotiations with the prosecution and Mr. Sullivan was able to negotiate a plea to Reckless Driving. The DUI and Speeding charges were dismissed.
