30 DAY WARNING

You only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative license hearing or to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. If you fail to request a hearing or install the device, your driver's license will be automatically suspended. The hearing request must be submitted by mail and costs $150. It is in your best interest to contact a Euharlee GA DUI Attorney to discuss whether the ALS hearing or the ignition interlock device is the best option for your case.

First Time DUI

If you have been arrested for DUI in Euharlee and have no prior record, you face serious penalties which can cause significant disruptions in your life. Georgia law enforcement officials are cracking down to make sure anyone caught receives sufficient punishment to prevent subsequent DUIs. A first time Georgia DUI offender can face a minimum of 24 hours in jail and a maximum of 12 months in jail. However, most of the time a judge will allow a first time DUI offender to complete their jail sentence on probation. While this seems ideal, probation comes with a lot of conditions and responsibilities. Probation can also be costly with the monthly supervision fees.

Common punishments for a first DUI in Georgia can include:'

  • 12 months of probation
  • Alcohol and Drug counseling
  • 40 hours of community service
  • Fines between $300-$1,000
  • 1-10 days in jail
  • License suspension
  • DUI School

Remember, these are punishments only if you are convicted. There are lots of Georgia DUI defenses our Euharlee DUI lawyers can use to defend your case. No matter the particulars of your case, there are many potential defenses to your DUI charge.

Felony DUI

Most DUI charges are classified as misdemeanor offenses. However, there are certain situations where the DUI can be charged as a felony offense. Once convicted of a felony DUI in Georgia, it will stay on your record for the rest of your life. The punishment for a felony DUI extends beyond prison and hefty fines. People who have a felony on their criminal record generally lose the right to hold public offense, the right to vote, and lose the ability to own and possess firearms. It can also make it more difficult to obtain housing, credit, or employment.

A person will be charged with felony DUI in Georgia if they are convicted of a fourth DUI or subsequent DUI within 10 years. The penalty is a prison term between one and five years and a fine up to $5,000. Additional consequences include a minimum of 60 days of community service, a clinical evaluation, and DUI school.

It is important to note that a person convicted of a third or subsequent DUI within five years will be classified and declared a habitual violator. Habitual violator is a status and not a criminal offense in and of itself. However, there are penalties that accompany a habitual violator status. One such penalty is that a HV will have their license revoked for five years.

Whether this is your first, second, third, or fourth DUI, our Euharlee DUI Lawyers can help. Do not make the mistake of thinking there are no options available to you if charged with felony DUI in Euharlee. Whether you are a habitual violator or a first time DUI driver, our attorneys want to help with your case. There are always Georgia DUI Defenses that we can use to support your case. However, time is of the essence with DUI cases. You only have 30 days to prevent the automatic suspension of your driver's license. Additionally, the more time you give us to collect evidence, the better.
