In America, you are innocent until proven guilty. This applies to all criminal charges, including DUI and drug charges. At Baker and Slider, we have the experience and skills you need to fight your case. We have extensive experience and a track record of success defending DUI and criminal cases in Elbert County. We also stay up to date on the latest cases and legal rulings.
Police in Elbert County are aggressive when it comes to handing out DUI charges. The penalties for DUI include heavy fines, community service, jail time, lost driving privileges and more. Additionally, those are only the punishments leveled by the government. DUI defendants also risk losing their jobs, being turned down for future employment, criticism from friends and family, and more. Insurance rates will go up, and the DUI charge will stay on your record for years, making any background check problematic. With so much to lose, you'll want to ensure that you have the best possible DUI defense.
First time misdemeanor DUI charges are either prosecuted in the Elberton City Municipal Court or the State Court of Elbert County, which prosecutes all misdemeanor offenses in the county.
