DUI Charges in Georgia
DUI may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the particular facts of the case. As our Gwinnett County DUI lawyer begins reviewing your case and building your defense, we look for problems related to the traffic stop, testing, investigation, and other flaws in the prosecution’s case to prepare the best possible defense strategy for each situation.
In Georgia, a DUI arrest can result in charges that include:
Misdemeanor DUI: Although a misdemeanor is a less serious charge, compared with a felony, a conviction can result in fines, community service, requirements to attend DUI classes and actions against your driver’s license. In addition, you will have a criminal record.
- Felony DUI: An individual may be charged with a felony when there are one or more prior convictions or the DUI involved a car wreck, extensive property damage, serious injury, or death.
- Underage DUI: Like many states, Georgia takes underage DUI very seriously. Underage persons may face a conviction for a BAC as low as .02% and face a 6-month license suspension for a BAC under the typical legal limit of .08%. If the BAC is above .08% the driver’s license may be suspended for one year, in addition to fines and other penalties.
- Boating DUI: In addition to operating a vehicle, the law prohibits operating a boat under the influence.
In Georgia, a DUI conviction can result in extended jail time, loss of your driving license, community service, fines, and other penalties. Our Forsyth County DUI lawyer understands Georgia DUI laws and uses this experience to fight for dismissal and prevent a criminal conviction, whenever possible.
