It can be scary to get your first DUI charge, but that doesn't mean that you should wait to take action in your defense. There's more to Georgia's DUI laws than you might think. Oftentimes individuals are charged with a First offense DUI because they were not aware of the different ins and outs of the laws governing DUI in Georgia. As a first time offender, you likely will not have experience with the process of mounting a criminal DUI defense, and the information you find online is often confusing and outdated.
Even if you've never been charged with DUI before, you can still face extremely stiff penalties. Some of those penalties include loss of your driver's license, thousands of dollars in fines, and jail time. These are just the penalties from the government. People convicted of first time DUI also risk losing their jobs, face increased insurance rates and premiums, a criminal record that can hurt future employment prospects, and more.
