MY BROTHER RECENTLY GOT A DUI IN GEORGIA AND BLEW A 0.09 WITH THE OFFICER ON THE ROADSIDE, HE THEN TOOK A BLOOD ALCOHOL TEST ONCE AT THE STATION. HE HAS SINCE REQUESTED THE POLICE REPORT AND BAC RESULTS AND WAS TOLD THEY WOULD NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THE ACTUAL COURT DATE (2 MONTHS FROM NOW). IS THIS TRUE OR IS HE ABLE TO SEE THE RESULTS BEFORE THE COURT DATE? ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Yes, a criminal defendant has a right to examine any and all evidence that the State plans on using against him in a...
both dui's were below .10 bac im a little confused bc i just read that GA has a min 3 year suspension for second DUI. I went to court in SC and they sent paperwork to the GA DMV to suspend my licence. i was told that my suspension would only be for one year. i have not gotten it back yet. what exactly would i have to do to get it back? Is it possible to have only a one year suspension since my licence is out of GA and the second dui was in SC
Georgia will impose the same suspension whether your license is a GA license or SC license. GA will suspend your...
I am on probation for a DUI which requires monthly drug testing. I had a test today (a dipstick test) that came back negative for alcohol, marijuana and other narcotics. I was told that the sample had to be sent to a lab for confirmation. I am not sure what they will re-test, but I have heard that if it is an ETG test, it may come back as positive as it is sensitive to ANY alcohol level. Would it be considered a violation of probation if this happens? Even though the test was negative at first?
Depending on the sensitivity of the test, it is possible to show a trace level of alcohol from incidental sources, such...

Short answer is likely. I advise that your bf contact Ward & Spires law firm in Augusta.
He has a possession charge in 2008?
What exactly is your question. It sounds like you already got the information you are looking for.
I did take the field sobriety test which my attorney felt the results was satisfactory an didnt show signs of intoxication . I refused the breathalyzer test ,went to d.d.s court in which the officer didn't show therefore they dismissed the charge an I retained my license . But every time my attorney and I go to court for the criminal DUI charge , the prosecutor keeps asking for a continuance.It has been 2 years already how long can they continue this?
The short answer is that they can delay a long as the judge allows them to, though your attorney can argue that...
I was charged with a DUI November 2012 in GA. It was reduced to reckless. I know that my lawyer said the Dui would stay as the charge. But when I recently applied for a job, they asked to explain any conviction in full. I said reckless driving, but in person explained the reduction before they requested a background check. I haven't heard back from them after I was originally hired, and it could just be taking longer, but I'm worried I should have disclosed the dui in the application too, or if disclosing it verbally is okay. What do you think?
I think that unless they ask you for more information or fire you that you should keep your mouth shut. It doesn't...
