MOULTRIE -- A state court case stemming from a former prosecutor's car accident was continued Thursday.
Former Assistant District Attorney Marsha Boniface was charged with failure to report an accident with injuries or damage and driving too fast for conditions when she wrecked her car Valentine's Day in a one-car accident. She resigned several days after the incident.
The Georgia State Patrol would not press any additional charges after interviewing a teen-ager who said she and two other juveniles stopped to help Boniface after she flipped her sports utility vehicle into the ditch. Boniface was apparently unconscious when they found her with a bleeding bump on her head. She identified herself as a district attorney, said she was drunk and had to get her purse and tag off her truck, the girl said in a written statement.
The statement said Boniface got the teens to remove her license tag and retrieve her purse and license from the vehicle.
Law enforcement officials found an empty wine bottle in the truck, which smelled heavily of alcohol. The teen had said Boniface had asked the juveniles to throw a "liquor bottle" into the woods, but they refused.
Sometime during the incident, a tow truck came by, but the prosecutor told the teens to tell the driver they were handling the accident and send the driver on, the juvenile said.
