What Are The Penalties For A DUI Conviction?
A driving under the influence charge is a serious charge in this state. Penalties for a conviction include jail time, a driver’s license suspension, community service, steep fines, and more.
The penalties for repeat offenders are even more severe, including a possible felony conviction – meaning that time in prison is likely for a convicted repeat DUI offender in this state.
Beyond the legal penalties, a DUI conviction will raise your auto insurance rates, and if you drive for a living, you’ll have to find other work.
If you hold a professional license in Georgia, a driving under the influence conviction puts that license at risk of suspension or revocation.
Why Are DUI Cases Different From Other Criminal Cases?
However, driving under the influence – usually – is one of the most unjustly imposed criminal charges in the entire criminal justice system.
Why? Because many police officers form opinions about a driver’s impairment and make arrest decisions improperly.
Were you stopped by the police without probable cause? Was your field sobriety test properly administered?
How Can A DUI Attorney At Spaulding Law Help You?
If the police violated your rights during an investigation, interrogation, search, or arrest, it’s possible that your attorney can have the charge against you dismissed.
A criminal defense attorney at Spaulding Law will find any flaws in the officer’s investigation or in the state’s case against you.
Your attorney then will explain why the driving under the influence charge against you should be dismissed or why you should be found not guilty.
The goal in a DUI case is an acquittal or a dismissal of charges, but if the state’s case against you is conclusive and your conviction is a foregone conclusion, a skilled DUI lawyer will negotiate for an acceptable plea bargain and for minimum or alternative sentencing.
