Why does this headline seem important. There are several reasons but none so much more if you are charged with a crime by one of the Troopers listed on the release by various news stations including Fox and Athens Online. Georgia State Patrol officers issue citations and arrest individuals for a multitude of reasons: DUI (driving under the influence), Super Speeder, Reckless Driving, Failure to Maintain Lane, Following too Closely and the list goes on.
These troopers have been accused, themselves, of cheating on their exams in their graduating class. As a result of this “scandal” everything that the troopers have done can be called into question.
Of course, being charged by these officers alone may not have happened to you. If you were arrested by other Georgia State Patrol officers, or any police officers you need help from a trained attorney to help in your case.
