Will I Lose My License? Roswell DUI Charges
The Possibility of Losing Your License
There are a wide number of factors that can influence a judge’s decision to take away your license. The nature of your DUI charges can have a large influence on this decision. If you injured another individual or caused a significant amount of property damage while under the debilitating influence of drugs or alcohol, chances are that you will lose your license without seasoned legal representation. Whether or not you stand the risk of losing your license also depends on your level of intoxication at the time of arrest.
Another factor that can result in losing your license is whether you have prior DUI or criminal offenses on your record. Having multiple DUI convictions on your record is a problem when it comes to a judge’s decision to take away your license. No matter what the circumstances or nature of your charges are, if you are accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, it is absolutely imperative to contact a Roswell DUI attorney to discuss the situation and how to address it legally.
Caught Drinking While on Probation?
Under Georgia law, if you are on probation for DUI you are prohibited from drinking any alcoholic beverages. If you get caught, it's a probation violation and the judge can send you to jail for the remainder of your sentence. Many people are sent back to jail because of probation violations. The sentence can be anywhere from a couple of days to months. It's at the discretion of the judge. As for getting caught, detection methods have become quite sophisticated recently and tests can now detect alcohol at far smaller levels than a breathalyzer test. The EtG (Ethyl Glucuronide) test is sensitive to alcohol 3 or 4 days after consumption. So while a breathalyzer test won't detect any alcohol several days after drinking, the EtG test will.
