What are the consequences of a Labor Day weekend DUI in Georgia?

If you were caught behind the wheel this Labor Day weekend driving under the influence of alcohol for the first time, you will likely face serious punishments, even though it is your first offense. The state of Georgia does not accept DUI charges. The following are the consequences of a first-offense DUI in Georgia:

  • Between 10 days and 1 year in jail
  • A 12-month license suspension, though you may have your license reinstated after 120 days upon completion of the DUI Alcohol or Drug Use Risk Reduction Program
  • A possible $300-$1,000 fine, plus court surcharges
  • Up to 40 hours of community service
  • You may be subjected to clinical evaluation and treatment

It is essential to acknowledge that you will only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to hire the services of a Georgia DUI lawyer. With the help of an attorney, you will be able to train for an Administrative License Hearing. Without this happening, your license will be instantly suspended after 30 days. As a result of this, it is in your best interest to reach out to our firm today if you have been arrested for a DUI in the state of Georgia.

What can occur after a second-offense DUI in Georgia?

As anticipated, drivers will face more strict consequences for second offenses. If this is your second DUI offense within five years, you can encounter the following:

  • Between 90 days and 1 year in jail
  • A 3-year license suspension
  • A potential $600-$1,000 fine, plus court surcharges
  • Up to 240 hours of community service
  • Enrollment in the DUI Alcohol or Drug Use Risk Reduction Program
  • You may be subjected to clinical evaluation and treatment

Your charges will continue to increase in severity if you are pulled over for a third or subsequent offense.
