Adams v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Gregory Adams was tried by jury and found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol to the extent that he was less safe to drive, failure to maintain lane, and following too closely. He appealed, claiming the trial court erred in admitting evidence regarding a stipulation in an administrative license suspension hearing pursuant to OCGA 40-5-67.1 and evidence of a 2011 arrest for DUI. The Court of Appeals affirmed his convictions. While the Georgia Supreme Court did not agree with all that was stated in the Court of Appeals’ opinion, it nevertheless concluded Adams affirmatively waived the first claim and failed to demonstrate error with respect to the second claim. Therefore, the Court affirmed the judgment of the Court of Appeals.
