What happens after a first DUI arrest in Georgia

Posted by Richard Lawson | Sep 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

If you are arrested for DUI in Georgia, and it is your first offense, it is an extremely stressful event.  For those whose arrest is their first offense, you may feel like you have no place to turn.  Don't panic.  Your first step is to choose the best DUI defense.

You have many options, but time is of the essence.  In Georgia, you only have 10 days to file your 10 day letter.

What is the 10 day letter?

The 10 day letter is the start of the process of defending your DUI case in Georgia.  It is the request for a Georgia ALS Hearing, the process of saving your license in Georgia. If you don't have a Georgia DUI Attorney file your hearing request, your drivers license will be suspended for up to one year.

What happens next?

The next steps in the process include arraignment, investigation of your case, motions hearings, pretrial conference, plea-bargaining, and trial.

In our next serious of articles, the entire Georgia DUI Process will be explained in great detail. If you were arrested for DUI in Atlanta, Call Atlanta DUI Attorney Richard Lawson today.
