Legal Options When Facing A Subsequent DUI

The state of Georgia takes all DUI cases very seriously. Prosecutors, however, often seek maximum penalties and show little leniency to anyone who has prior DUI convictions on his or her record. If you are facing your second, third or fourth DUI charge, it is vital that you speak to an experienced Chatham County multiple DUI defense attorney as soon as possible.

Timing Is Critical In Georgia DUI Cases

In Georgia, individuals charged with DUI only have 10 days to protect your privilege to drive during your case. After your free consultation, I will work quickly to file all necessary paperwork and help you avoid the almost immediate license suspension period. Once this step is complete, I will begin analyzing and investigating your situation, including:

  • Reviewing the police report
  • Obtaining video of the pull over
  • Ensuring all sobriety tests and BAC tests were properly administered
  • Scrutinizing whether the arresting officer had probable cause
  • Reviewing anything else specific to your situation

Don't delay in getting the experienced help you need. Contact my Savannah DUI defense law office online today to schedule a free initial consultation. You may also call my firm directly at 912-598-6022 or toll free at 800-580-6527.

Repeat DWI/DUI: Potential Penalties

Several factors influence the potential penalties you face when you are charged with your second or third DUI. These factors include the number of prior DUI offenses and how recently they occurred, whether there was a minor in the vehicle at the time of the offense, the exact level of alcohol or drugs in your system, and whether an accident or injury occurred.

Depending on your specific situation, you could face penalties such as:

  • An extended prison sentence
  • Mandatory minimum jail time
  • Alcohol treatment courses
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Revocation of your license
  • Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device on your vehicle

In addition to court-ordered penalties, a multiple DUI offense can also affect your ability to obtain or retain employment, obtain housing, and can have a negative impact on your home and personal life. For all of these reasons, hiring an experienced and aggressive DUI defense attorney is vital to your freedom and your future.
