As a criminal defendant in Georgia, you do have the right, in a DUI case, to demand that the state turn over the evidence against you. However, filing for discovery can be a very time consuming and tedious process for an untrained or inexperienced person. Georgia statutes (law) control most of the criminal and DUI discovery process in Georgia, and having a strong knowledge of the laws and application is key to effectively obtain all of your discovery evidence.
As a defense attorney practicing exclusively in DUI defense and criminal defense, I know the discovery rules inside and out. Motions to the prosecutor demanding all of the evidence in your case are promptly sent, as well as an investigation and gathering any evidence that maybe available through the Georgia Open Records Act. While the Act does have an exception that exempts providing records where a prosecution is pending, having a knowledge of which agencies will and will not use the exemption allows me to usually obtain vital documents much quicker in your pending DUI case, as sometimes the discovery maybe months down the road.
