A federal prosecutor in Rhode Island had drunk driving charges against him dismissed by a judge on Monday according to the Associated Press. A lawyer for the city of Warwick asked that the charges be dropped against Gerard Sullivan, an Assistant U.S. Attorney. Sullivan was not initially charged with DUI following a Thanksgiving weekend stop. The Warwick police chief has launched an investigation as to why Sullivan wasn’t arrested following a drunk driving stop early Thanksgiving morning.
According to Robert Sgori, the lawyer for the city, he asked that the charges be dismissed because Sullivan has already voluntarily given up his license for seven months and that he admitted that there was enough evidence to prove he refused a breath test. Seems like that decision should be investigated as well.
