10 Ways to Beat DUI Charges in Georgia

1.  The Police DUI Roadblock Improper

2.  The Standardized Field Sobriety Tests are Generally Very Inaccurate

The tests are even less accurate if you are suffering from an injury or other medical condition, you are more than 50 pounds overweight, or are older than 65 years of age.

3.  Non-standard tests

    • Any test that is not approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is not admissible as evidence of drunk driving.

4.  Breath Testing is generally inaccurate

5.  The prosecutor didn’t prove the case against you.

The State has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt each and every element of DUI.

6. The police officer didn’t have Probable Cause to arrest you.

If the police officer doesn’t have probable cause, the fruits of the poisoned tree won’t be allowed in court. If there wasn’t probable cause to arrest you, your case may be dismissed.

7.  Your Miranda Rights were not properly followed.

8. Videos…

Police cars are equipped with cameras. Police interrogation rooms are equipped with cameras. The office where a breath test is administered is equipped with cameras. If the video shows that you don’t appear to be impaired, that can help your case.

9.  or Lack of Videos

If the police say there isn’t a video, your attorney can argue to the jury that the lack of video may be because what was on the video would help your case.

10.  Independent Witnesses

There may be some third party witnesses like your passengers or other drivers that saw how your were driving. If they testify that your driving was safe the jury may not believe the state’s version that you were driving impaired.
