Farmer v State - asking for a Urine test in response to Implied Consent

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Request Independent Georgia DUI testIn Farmer v. State, 335 GA. App. 679, 782 S.E.2d 786 (2016), the Court of Appeals found that asking for a urine test in response to the Georgia Implied Consent Rights is not a request for an additional test but only requesting that the Officer designate that test. The Court distinguished McGinn v. State, 268 Ga. App. 450, 452, 602 SE2d 209 (2004) where the Defendant requested an independent blood test and then re-initiated the request during the State Administered Breath Test.
