Ga Supreme Court Gives DUI/DWi Defendants a fighting chance

February 18, 2019

On Monday, February 18, 2019 the Supreme Court of Georgia extended constitutional protections to defendants by stating, in essence the fact a defendant did not submit to a chemical breath test cannot be used against them at trial. The SC adopted the position that the Georgia Constitution affords defendants more protection against self-incrimination than the US Constitution. 

This decision will undoubtedly cause a ripple effect of court decisions and legislation. It is going to be interesting to keep a close eye on this development.
