What is Considered Evidence in a Georgia DUI Case?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

There's many different types of evidence in Georgia DUI Cases. Evidence can range from results from Georgia DUI breath and blood tests to related traffic offenses such as Georgia Failure to Maintain Lane or Georgia Following Too Closely. 

Most people tell me that the state of Georgia has “nothing on me” or “they don't have any evidence against me.” Unfortunately, this all the more reason people are confused about Georgia DUI Laws. 

There are two categories of evidence - direct evidence and circumstantial evidence. Direct evidence is evidence that proves a fact without the need for reasoning. Circumstantial evidence is evidence that can be proved by reasoning. 

Examples of Direct Evidence 

  • Test Results
  • Eye witnesses 
  • Surveillance tapes
  • Admission of guilt

Examples of Circumstantial Evidence 

A person can be convicted on either direct or circumstantial evidence - however, most of the time it's both. One of the roles of a Georgia DUI Lawyer is to investigate and evaluate the evidence in an accused person's case. 

Our attorneys will do their best in ensuring that improper evidence is not presented in court. Our main goal is to test the chance of conviction based on the evidence in any case. We are able to predict the chance of conviction and the exact probability of getting a case dismissed or reduced to Georgia Reckless Driving. 

I write frequently about the different DUI Defenses in Georgia, when they can be utilized in a case, and how we apply them. There is nothing more important in a DUI Case than being able to understand the complexities of the evidence and how to best present and defend it.

We are a firm that is solely focused and dedicated to DUI Defense and all DUI-related traffic offenses. If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI in Georgia, contact us today.
