I don’t recall the officer ever reading me my Miranda rights. Can this influence the outcome of my legal defense?

Possibly. An officer’s obligation to read Miranda rights is triggered by an arrest, or once a person is placed in custody (in other words, not free to leave). If you responded to officer questions or have otherwise been interrogated when under arrest or in custody, absent Miranda warnings, your Georgia DUI lawyer may succeed in keeping your answers out of evidence in court (suppressing such statements).

You should contact an experienced Alpharetta DUI attorney (or a DUI lawyer in the jurisdiction of your arrest) to thoroughly investigate your case and determine if the officer’s failure to read your Miranda rights may impact your case.
