Penalties for Multiple DUI Convictions
The heavy punishments imposed upon drunk drivers who are repeat offenders in Georgia are intended to deter those who would consider driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you do not retain the services of our legal team, you could be facing serous penalties including the loss of driving privileges for one year or longer, up to five years of probation, thousands of dollars in fines, and a minimum of ninety days in jail. Individuals that are facing DUI charges for a fourth offense, based on the circumstances, can face a long period in jail, a revocation of driver’s license.

It is crucial that you have an experienced defense lawyer who gets involved early to take action in your case.
