Despite the fact that DUI arrests are one of the most common types of criminal proceedings, many people are unaware of the consequences of being convicted of DUI, especially if it is their first offense. If you have been accused of DUI, you have the same rights as anyone else who has been arrested including the right to remain silent and the right to have an attorney. Even if you have submitted to field sobriety tests, a roadside Alcosensor test or a breath test on an Intoxilyzer 5000 that indicates that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over the legal limit of .08 (.02 if you are a minor), you still have a defensible DUI case. DUI charges often stem from illegal traffic stops, where the arresting officer pulls you over without probable cause or reasonable suspicion. Additionally, police officers often read the wrong version of the Georgia Implied Consent Notice or fail to read the notice all together.
A DUI conviction can have a significant impact on your life, freedom and ability to keep your driver’s license. If your license is suspended or revoked, you may be unable to get to and from your job. That is why you need an experienced attorney who understands all aspects of a DUI arrest and can guide you around the many pitfalls related to a DUI. If you have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, contact our offices to schedule a free initial consultation.
