Georgia DUI Reports
Now imagine a much more serious act of laziness - law enforcement filling out DUI police reports before the crimes are even committed.
Surprised? This is actually happening all over the nation. Media from news stations have been investigating suspicious DUI police reports. From police department computers with prewritten DUI templates to the extremely coincidental similarities of DUI police reports, people are starting to turn up their own investigations on DUI police reports.
Police reports are very important to DUI court cases because the judge and/or jury look at the testimony of the police officer to help determine the facts of the case. Pertinent information and detailed descriptions about the DUI case are included in a police report.
So imagine the surprise when one news station uncovered a story about a deputy who within six months time all had DUI suspects that swayed in the exact same manner. It was even found that phrasing from different reports were exactly the same.
This led many people to believe that DUI police reports had been prewritten. They even found the exact phrasing from different officers. Since each DUI case is unique unto itself, it’s hard to believe that two different suspects had the exact same behavior with two different police officers.
What does all this mean for your DUI case? DUI police report information is not always 100% accurate or even true. Sometimes people are mistaken, have a bad memory or just plain lie. Or in the case of the officers in question, some just hit print on a DUI template and fill in your information when they arrest you for your DUI.
