While it’s rare that charges are dismissed once someone is charged with a crime, it can happen. Typically, the only way charges are dismissed are through a pretrial program. However, sometimes charges can be dismissed through other circumstances. Recently, a UGA football player has his charges dismissed after the officer who arrested him was fired from the department. Previously, we had a client who was charged with a DUI. After reviewing the evidence against him, the charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence. As your attorney, we investigate all criminal charges and through the process of discovery we are able to view any evidence that the state possesses against you.
It’s important to consult an attorney regarding your case when handling these kinds of charges. If you have been arrested for an alcohol offense in or around Athens, GA, attorney Joseph Lariscy can help. For a free consultation call (706) 389-4375 or contact us online for legal assistance.
