    I'm not sure what the explanation is, but the DUI case against Cullen Coraine has been dismissed.

    Court information here.

    Are you happy or mad about him getting off?

    Not too happy at all. With Pinkerton as his lawyer, I'm sure he appealed his license suspension for the refusal to blow within the 10 days required and will get the suspension turned over as well. Pretty soon this fine, upstanding citizen will be back on our streets, enforcing the law with a pretty hefty chip on his shoulder.

    I am very interested in the mechanical process of justice and the Courts in Walton County. This fills in another piece of the puzzle.

    I am a fair person. The domestic wasn't his fault. He was the victim. Still, the DUI should stick.

    Does the WCSO have any rules/regs regarding priors or alleged crimes during employment?

    I would think you wouldn't want someone who has been in court 2x in 3 years ENFORCING the laws.

    At one time you could google his license plate "slo poc" and find an abundance of him racing in the streets of South Walton County. Now most of the links are dead and the ones that do work just show pictures.

    I know. It only works for a few minutes and then the Clerk of Courts website directs you back to the search page. Just type in his name. You'll see it.

    This smells a little fishy, like 20 day old fish?

    Reminds me of some brownies I had a long time ago. I didn't think I was dying but I couldn't get off of the couch.

    I don't think I could have operated a remote control.

    I think this goes to show you that the evidents against the deputy was not valid if the SA would not object to any of the evidents as stated in the daily news. I do belive that this was a beef between some deputies that did not like him. The news paper did state that the deputy who stoped hom for doing 80 mph did not have a radar as i stated in the origonal post about this. I think that the deputies who did the stop then did not call the FHP in to investigate this should be fired for poor police work and wasting county tax money

    Right here!
    Did he ever take a blood or breath test? I have to assume the judge had good reason to throw the DUI out. He did get the speeding ticket though. I imagine if you get a few of those it means a suspension or something.

    It'll be interesting tonight if he is working traffic tonight and gets any DUI's. Seems like it might be a good legal argument if he pulls you over.
