JUST GOT A DUI. WHAT DO I DO?
Even with Changes…..
In a Gwinnett County Case, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled in April of 2015 that testing a suspected drunken driver, in accordance with a state law, was unconstitutional. Refusing to be tested for drugs or alcohol would result in loss of driving privileges for one year is what the law stated. The Constitution protects against unreasonable search and seizure and Justices stated the law was contradicting that very right. They state that the suspect who submits to the test has not necessarily agreed freely to waive the constitutional requirement for a warrant.
Call Blevins & Hong before taking a situation like this on your own. The knowledge provided and the comfort given by having the backing of a Marietta DUI lawyer is assured peace of mind.
Under Georgia law, it is a criminal offense to operate a motor vehicle when your ability to drive has been impaired by the use of alcohol or drugs or if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 percent or higher. If you are a commercial driver or are under the age of 21, the legal limit is even lower (0.04 and 0.02 respectively).
DUI is most commonly a misdemeanor offense, which means the maximum punishment you can receive is usually 12 months in jail and a $1000 fine. There are situations, however, where a DUI can become a felony offense; for example, if someone was seriously injured or killed in an accident where the driver was under the influence. Other situations that can lead to felony charges include a defendant who has four prior DUI offenses within a five year period or cases where there was a child under the age of 14 in the vehicle.
