Police in Hall County are aggressive when it comes to handing out DUI charges and prosecutors are very diligent in their prosecution of these cases. Hall County also has a DUI/Drug Court program for repeat DUI offenders that is often times utilized by prosecutors in their disposition of DUI cases. 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.
