It has been reported in the Atlanta media, including the television news and the AJC, that there was a head-on collision involved in her case.
This assumption is not always fair. I do not know the specific facts involved in her case and do not represent her. However, I have watched multiple news reports accusing her of being at fault in the accident.
While it is certainly possible she is at fault, that should not be assumed. There will be an accident reconstruction that will shed light onto the fault of the accident.
Many times the other driver is a fault, even in situations where someone else is charged with DUI. Being a DUI Driver in Atlanta GA does not mean you are necessarily responsible for an accident, yet that is many times assumed.
At our office, we never assume guilty in any matter. Our Atlanta DUI Attorneys are trained to look past initial reports and look into the actual facts of a case. An arrest for DUI in Atlanta does not mean you are guilty.
This does not mean we don't take the offense of DUI seriously. Of course we do. We just don't assume that every time the State charges someone with a crime that they are automatically guilty.
The State must prove their case beyond all reasonable doubt, and people are presumed innocent until such time that State proves their case with proper and admissible evidence.
