30-Day Warning

If you were arrested for DUI in Luthersville GA, you only have thirty days to file a request for an Administrative License Suspension (ALS) Hearing or to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. A failure to complete either of these within 30 days will result in a license suspension. If you refused the State's test of your breath, blood, or urine, your license would be suspended for twelve months without the option of receiving a permit to drive.

What Happens After the Arrest in a Luthersville GA DUI Case? 

While the laws and statutes surrounding DUI are the same throughout Georgia, the court procedures differ by county to county, city to city, and even court. Fulton County State Court handles cases differently than Luthersville Municipal Court. It is critical that you understand the DUI process in order to be successful.

If you were arrested within the city limits of Luthersville, then your case will proceed to Luthersville Municipal Court. While their process may differ from other cities, your case will likely continue as follows:

Arraignment

Your first court appearance is likely your arraignment hearing. The purpose of this hearing is to have your charges formally read aloud to you in court and for you to determine what type of plea you want to enter. If you hire a Luthersville GA DUI Lawyer, they can waive your arraignment and file discovery requests that will contain the documents showing exactly what you have been charged with.

30-Day Hearing

After the DUI arrest, you only have 30 days to request an Administrative License Suspension (ALS) hearing. A failure to request this hearing will result in your license being suspended on the 46th day. If you request the hearing, then you will receive notice of a court date. Your DUI lawyer in Luthersville GA will handle this hearing for you. You are not required to attend. At this hearing, your attorney will meet with the arresting officer to try and resolve the issue of your license suspension.

Motions

The next step in the court process is for your attorney to file motions and have hearings on these motions. This is a very important of your DUI case. After investigating all the evidence in your case, your Luthersville GA DUI Lawyer may find that the evidence in your case was not collected lawfully. Your lawyer can file a motion to suppress the improperly seized evidence. There are multiple motions that your lawyer can file on your behalf. If the judge rules in favor of the motion, then the exclusion of evidence can lead to the State dismissing or reducing your DUI charge.

Plea Negotiations/Trial

To resolve your DUI case, there are two basic options. The first one is to work out a plea bargain with the prosecutor. The second option is to contest the charges with a trial. Every DUI case is different, and you must work with your Luthersville GA DUI lawyers to determine which option is best for your case. We have decades of experience reaching a plea bargain as well as litigating a case.

We will carefully walk you through your options to make you make an informed decision about your case! Whether to take your case to trial or to enter a plea is the most important decision in your case. Do not take it lightly and discuss your situation with the best DUI attorney in Georgia.

Appeal

If you have been convicted of a DUI in Georgia, you do have the option to appeal the conviction. However, Georgia law requires that you begin this process within 30 days of your conviction by filing either a motion for new trial or a notice of appeal. There are many ways to challenge your conviction, and our Luthersville GA DUI Attorneys are ready to help you get your conviction reversed. However, it is important to note that if you pled guilty to DUI, your ability to appeal the conviction is limited.
