Reality star prepares criminal defense after DUI arrest

Georgia residents are aware that being accused of a DUI is a serious matter. When people hear that a person has been arrested for this crime, they may imagine scenes they have seen on television of a driver obviously under the influence, swerving and slurring, becoming a danger to him- or herself and others on the road. While certainly, these scenarios are a reality on some occasions, many times, a person accused of DUI in Georgia is not actually guilty and may jump at the chance to present a criminal defense.

Recently, a reality television star was pulled over under suspicious circumstances. Georgia police claimed she ran a red light -- a common driving offense. Perhaps unaware that police had signaled for her to pull over, she reportedly drove a block or so before she pulled over. When officers approached the vehicle, they claimed to smell alcohol. The woman admitted she had had a drink earlier in the evening but insisted she did not drink enough to be over the legal limit.

Though no blood or breath test was administered, she was arrested for DUI. While seated in the back of the police car, she suffered injuries because the officer driving nearly hit a man on a bicycle and slammed on the brakes. She was taken to the hospital for treatment and continues to maintain her innocence. 

Being accused of a DUI may at first seem overwhelming, but each person accused has the opportunity to present a criminal defense. The prosecution is responsible for proving that a defendant has broken the law. Many persons in Georgia who have been accused decide to allow an experienced attorney to help them when it comes time to present their case to a judge. An attorney can help ensure a client's rights are protected during all parts of the legal process, and place the burden of proof upon the accusers.
