No matter who you are, or where you come from, or that you have a spotless record—a DUI conviction is a life-altering event. It’s not just hardened criminals who face serious criminal charges. A person that has never committed a crime before may make a serious error in judgment—such as getting behind the wheel after a few too many drinks with a client, or after a dinner party, or at a sporting event or family gathering. What starts out as a night of fun can quickly turn into your worst nightmare. O.C.G.A. §40-6-391.
In Georgia, the police take drunk driving very seriously, and prosecutors are cracking down hard on those accused of DUI. If you have been arrested for drinking and driving, here are some of the consequences that may face you:
- Suspension of your driver’s license
- Mandatory substance abuse programs
- DUI School
- Community service
- Steep fines and court costs
- Jail time and probation
- Increased insurance premiums/or cancellation
- Employment consequences/job loss
- Professional licensing consequences
- Permanent criminal record
