Possible DUI Penalties In Georgia
Georgia is an “implied consent” state, meaning you are required to take a blood or Breathalyzer test, or possibly face a license suspension. If you are convicted of a DUI, you could be facing serious penalties such as:
- First offense: 12-months’ probation, $300 fine, one to 10 days in jail, license suspension and counseling
- Second offense: 12-36 months’ probation, $1000 fine, three to 12 months in jail, license suspension and license plate surrender
- Third offense: 12-36 months’ probation, four to 12 months in jail, mandatory counseling and five-year license suspension
- Fourth offense: Felony conviction, one to five years in prison, 10-year license suspension and $5,000 fine
In addition to these penalties, you will need to attend DUI classes, do community service and may have an ignition interlock device installed.
We Will Help You Fight A DUI Charge
Before you face any of these penalties, we will investigate all aspects of your case to determine whether the traffic stop and arrest were lawful, whether field sobriety testing was performed properly, and whether there are issues with any breath or blood tests taken by the arresting officer. If there were mistakes made during the process, we will use them to defend your case.
Our goal is for you to keep your license and your freedom. Having a strong criminal defense attorney by your side to defend you against these charges can protect your future, including future job opportunities and your reputation.
