Euharlee DUI Penalties

Everybody makes mistakes but when that mistake involves drinking and driving in Georgia, the State wants to make sure it is a mistake you will never make again. The penalties for a DUI are substantial. Not only could you have your license suspended, you could also face criminal charges in court. While both of those consequences are severe and fairly well-known, the additional consequences are lesser known. Having a DUI conviction on your record can make it difficult to find employment, qualify for financial aid, and apply for housing.

The truth of the matter is that getting charged with a DUI isn't as simple as just going to court and paying some fines. In Georgia, a DUI is defined as driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of .08-percent; however, depending on the circumstances, you could receive penalties even if you're BAC is less than .08-percent. This is just one of the many reasons why hiring an Euharlee DUI lawyer is paramount. Our DUI Attorneys in Euharlee are able to navigate through all of the fine print when it comes to the law as well as work toward reducing fines and criminal penalties if not having your case dismissed or you found not guilty altogether. Some of the penalties you may face include:
