DUI cases in jeopardy after Richmond County, Georgia deputy admits falsifying readings

The forced resignation of a deputy assigned to the DUI task force could affect the prosecution of hundreds of cases.

This is happening a lot these days. The deputy in question had seven years experience working in the jail before being assigned to the DUI task force. What, I thought DUI cops were supposed to be highly trained in detecting and evaluating drunk driving? No, it’s not about getting drunks off the road. It’s about getting as many convictions as possible.

In this latest case of official dishonesty it appears that many people were convicted of DUI when they should never have been charged in the first place.

Is this what MADD wants? Yes, it is. Just convict them all, let fate sort them out.

They say there were probably dozens, perhaps hundreds of cases but they can’t prosecute the deputy because unless he tells them which cases were false charges they don’t which cases to look for to find the evidence. Falsifying evidence is a felony.
