In May 2007 Teresa Jean Spann was arrested for DUI. She was convicted after a bench trial in August of 2010. She appealed her conviction, contending that the trial court erred in allowing the admittance of similar transaction evidence and in denying her the issuance of an out-of-state subpoena. Though the Court rejected her argument over similar transaction evidence, it remanded the case to the trial court to reconsider the subpoena issue in light of Davenport v. State (2011). The trial court reviewed Spann's case and again found Spann was not entitled to subpoena an out-of-state witness. In light of the Georgia Supreme Court's grant of certiorari in Cronkite v. State, S12C1927 (Nov. 2012) – a similar case to be reviewed in the framework of “'whether the Court of Appeals properly applied Davenport v. State (2012)'” when granting the issuance of an out-of-state subpoena - the Court of Appeals adopted this same framework to address Spann's second appeal. more

Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Floyd County DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer--especially if they plea you to a DUI you don't deserve at the first opportunity--can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that's $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 10 hours on every DUI case. 2) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner's and area supervisor's manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can't answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.
