DUI Defense

Many people think of a DUI arrest as a minor blip on their legal record. While it’s true that, in most circumstances, a DUI is considered a misdemeanor under Georgia law, the penalties are steep. Since penalties for a DUI are intended to stop people from drinking and getting behind the wheel of a car, they also compound with each subsequent arrest, meaning the penalties for a third DUI conviction are much more severe than those for a first-time offense. When you are facing DUI charges, you are facing serious charges, and it’s important to treat them as such.

DUI Penalties in Georgia

The first time you are picked up for a DUI in the state of Georgia, you will spend a minimum of 24 hours in jail and pay a fine of at least $300, but may also face:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to a $1,000 fine
  • Driver’s license suspension for up to 1 year

The second time you are picked up for DUI in the state, you will serve a minimum of 3 days in jail, pay a fine of at least $600, have your driver’s license suspended for 3 years, but may also face:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to a $1,000 fine

The third time you are picked up for DUI, you will serve a minimum of 15 days in jail, pay a fine of at least $1,000, have your driver’s license suspended for 5 years, but may also face:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to a $5,000 fine

After a third offense within a 10-year period, it is within the rights of the court to change a DUI charge to a felony charge, and along with the fines and jail sentence, they may suspend your license indefinitely.
