Winning Your DUI Case In Henry County

(404) 816-4440

No DUI case is easy to win and it is very rare for Henry County DUI prosecutors to dismiss cases entirely. If you want to get a DUI off of your record, it is probable that you are going to have to hire a DUI lawyer and fight your case. Fighting your Henry County DUI case typically begins with entering a plea of “not guilty” at arraignment and filing motions for discovery (or to get the evidence). Often, Henry County prosecutors don't give you the evidence until just a few weeks before the trial calendar. Usually there is a videotape of your DUI arrest, but the prosecuting attorney don't provide you with a copy, but make you come to their office to watch it on their equipment. You are entitled to a trial by jury. If it is a misdemeanor DUI case, then you will get a jury of 6 people. The prosecutors on behalf of Henry County, must prove the charges against you to these 6 jurors beyond a reasonable doubt. That is a high standard. We have been successful in winning DUI cases based on lack of probable cause to stop and arrest for DUI. In many instances, we call in expert witnesses to discuss the faulty way in which field sobriety tests where administered to the accused driver or to questions the reliability and validity of the breath test machine results. There are legal challenges that can be made to the implied consent warning that the officer is required to give to you regarding a breath or blood test. If you are serious about fighting your Henry County DUI charge and clearing your name, call our attorneys who will fight for your rights.
