DUI charge without implied consent, breathalyzer, or field sobriety tests
My husband was pulled over after an officer attempted to pass him. The officer stated my husband almost hit his patrol car as he passed him. My husband was asked to exit the vehicle. He was given only the eye test. The standing/walking test was not given. The officer arrested him stating he failed the eye test and had blood shot eyes. He never read the implied consent, Miranda, and was never offered any breathalyzer or chemical tests. Can we independently request a dismissal in his case based on these facts?

DUI in GA. What is the possibility I get the case dismissed without a lawyer? What is the worse-case scenario?
I have a question, back in 2012 I received a DUI (.086) in GA no accident. At that time, I got arrested and served 30 days in jail for a previously unpaid ticket (expired tag with a FTA). Subsequently, I lost my job. After serving the 30 days, I got out, missed court, and moved to another state. Fast forward till today, since then I have paid off all the tickets, got my license reinstated, completed DUI school, got the new FTA cleared (for missing court after released from jail), and now have new court date set in Aug 2016 which I will attend. I did discover that the officer that pulled me over initially no longer works for the county.
It's possible that it will be dismissed because the officer no longer works for the county if the State can't get him...
