DUI and Refusal to Test
If you have been arrested for DUI or a refusal to test, you have only 10 days to ask for a hearing to avoid a license suspension. In many cases, our office has been able to help people keep their licenses. However, it is crucial to contact our office on time to allow us to request a hearing within the 10-day limitation period.
The .08 and .02 limits
For adults, the limit in Georgia is .08. For people under 21, the limit is .02. In Georgia, beer often has a 5.5 percent alcohol concentration (as opposed to 3.2 percent). The increased alcohol concentration of beer makes it even more likely that people who drink before driving will be found over the legal limit. The best course of action is to avoid alcohol prior to driving. If you have been arrested for a DUI, whether you are an adult, juvenile, private driver or commercial truck driver, our office can help.
Protect Your Rights -- Retain an Attorney
Even a first time DUI conviction will result in jail time. For a first time DUI conviction in Georgia, a person will receive a mandatory 24-hour jail sentence. In addition to jail time, penalties, including probation, community service, alcohol treatment and a monetary fine are possibilities.
Protect Your Record
A DUI conviction is a criminal conviction. It can have a lasting effect on your employment and educational opportunities. A conviction for drunk driving looks horrible on a job or school application. If you have been arrested for DUI or another traffic violation, retain the service of a criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.
We handle all traffic violations, including DUI, speeding, reckless driving and driving after revocation. If you have been charged with a DUI or other traffic violation, call Marietta Criminal Defense lawyer Harold B. Garcia, Attorney at Law, at 678-581-9200.
