Impersonating a Police Officer

Acquitted

A Lumpkin County Deputy Coroner was acquitted of felony charges of impersonating a police officer after a four day trial. Read more about the case by clicking on the following links:

DUI Drugs - Marijuana & Accident Reduced

DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving

My client allegedly ran a red light and T-boned a vehicle on Georgia Highway 400 in Cumming, Georgia. There were multiple injuries to both drivers. The police officer believed my client was under the influence of marijuana because he found a pipe in his car. The officer said my client failed the field sobriety evaluations. My client’s blood test was positive for THC. He was arrested and charged with DUI Drugs and multiple traffic violations.

Unfortunately, the officer made the quick decision to arrest simply based on speculation. The tests administered by the officer were not done pursuant to law. My client did not “fail” the field sobriety tests; he failed the officer’s interpretation of the tests. And after the blood was submitted to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, its own toxicologist would not agree the THC in the blood was high enough to cause impairment.

The DUI was reduced to Reckless Driving. The client was very happy.

DUI Alcohol .095 Reduced

Reduced to Reckless Driving

She was pulled over for speeding (84 in a 65) which quickly turned into a DUI. After the arrest, my client blew into the Intoxilyzer; the result was a .095. I was hired to fight the DUI.

We closed the case to a reduced charge of Reckless Driving.

Felony Aggravated Battery & Assault

Charges Reduced

My client was facing 55 years in prison. Our investigation revealed the incident did not happen quite like the police officer said. We brought our evidence to the prosecutor.

A few days later, our client was offered misdemeanors and the felony charges were dismissed.

Distribution of Hydrocodone - Dismissed

Dismissed

My client was arrested in Dawson County, Georgia for distributing oxycodone pills. It didn’t happen. We announced ready for trial. Once the prosecutor and I were able to have a chat, he realized it did not happen either. Rather than embarrass the officer on the stand, we received a full dismissal.

Possession of Methamphetamine

Case Dismissed

All searches of someone’s house have to comply with the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and the Georgia Constitution. My client was arrested in Dawson County, Georgia pursuant to a search. The search of his home was questionable; I filed a motion to suppress.

The judge threw out the case. The entire case. My client’s rights were violated, and everyone (but the officer) knew it. Case dismissed.

DUI - Double Refusal

Case Dismissed

My client, a retired police officer, was arrested for DUI. He allegedly crashed his motorcycle and ran home. Two hours later, a Georgia State Trooper came to his house and arrested him for DUI. There was absolutely no way the State of Georgia could prove this case. And there was absolutely no way my client was going to enter a plea of guilty.

After discussions with the prosecutor and the judge, all charges for DUI were dismissed.

DUI .197 Car Wreck Reduced

Reduced

It was a tough night for my client. He left a local bar in Dahlonega in Lumpkin County, Georgia and was allegedly really drunk. He drove his car off the road and into a ditch. A witness claimed to see the entire thing happen. The police officer arrived and conducted the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on my client. He said my client failed the tests (all of them), arrested him, and made him blow into the breath machine. My client blew a .197, which is over twice the legal limit.

My investigation revealed the officer was not trained in DUI Detection or Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Unfortunately for him, I am.

After speaking with the prosecutor, my client's DUI charge was reduced to a traffic offense. He did not have to go to jail. He did not lose his liberty. He did not plead guilty to DUI. He did not lose his license. We won.

Felony Sexual Battery Charges

Dismissed

After almost a year of litigation, my client’s felony sexual battery charges have been dismissed! The charges began when an angry employee, who was drinking on the job, was fired. From there, she went AWOL and made a false report to the sheriff’s office. My client was interviewed and arrested. His life and liberty were at stake.

From day one, my client said he did not do it. This meant my job went from a small battle of mitigating the facts of the case, to an all out war for freedom and proving innocence. I knew I had to win. And I did just that.

The prosecutor dismissed the felony sexual battery charges. All of them.

Felony Drug Charges Reduced

Reduced

My client was arrested for buying marijuana from a known supplier. She was officially charged with "Distributing Marijuana" which carries a very stiff prison sentence. She is young, well educated, has a good job, and certainly did not ever think she would face felony charges. Her whole life was turned upside down. Fortunately, she came to GeorgiaCrime.com.

After I reviewed the file, I knew something had to be done for this client. I called and fought with the prosecutor to reduce the charge. At first, the prosecutor resisted and pushed forward for a felony conviction. I presented case law and demanded it be considered.

After a 10 round battle with the prosecutor, the felony charges were dismissed! My client accepted a punishment for what she had done: possessed a joint's worth of marijuana. My client thought the fight was over. However, it wasn't. After her probation is completed, I made it so that her arrest will not result in a conviction, and her entire case will be expunged!
