Walton County DUI: .099 Breath Test (Dismissed)

Our client was stopped for failing to maintain her lane by a Walton County DUI trained deputy.  The failure to maintain lane is clearly visible on the video.  The Walton County Deputy did not properly administer the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, client does well on the walk and turn evaluation but does poorly on the one leg stand evaluation.  It is apparent that it was cold on the video.  Client is arrested and charged with a Walton County DUI.  She agrees to take the state breath test and blows a .099.  The legal limit in Georgia is.08.  Mr. Sullivan was able to negotiate with the Walton County prosecutor to dismiss the DUI charge and the Failure to Maintain Lane charge in exchange for a plea to Reckless Driving. 

Walton County DUI refusal – reduced

Client was stopped for speeding by a Walton County Sheriff’s deputy.  A DUI investigation took place where the deputy saw several signs of impairment and arrested our client for DUI.  The Georgia Implied Consent Notice was read and client had questions about the effect on an out of state driver’s license.  The deputy would not give a clear answer causing our client to refuse the state breath test.  Through negotiations, the Walton County prosecutor agreed to dismiss the DUI and the speeding charge in exchange for a plea to reckless driving.
