Clayton County DUI Jury Trial

July 28, 2011:  Clayton County DUI Jury Trial, Georgia DUI Attorney Mark Burton, NOT GUILTY

Defendant walked from home to where his car had been wrecked in a ditch and got there before Officers did.  Officers investigated the defendant for DUI and arrested him without field sobriety evaluations.  Defendant blew .126, but Officer could not identify at motion hearing whether Implied Consent Notice was read before or after arrest, so breath test results were excluded from the evidence before trial.  At trial on eight charges, only three went to the jury, the others being dismissed for lack of evidence.  After less than one hour, the jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY on DUI and Reckless Driving.  Defendant paid $145 for not having an updated address on his license.
