Georgia’s 30-Day Letter Requirement

Until recently, Georgia required that those who have been accused of a DUI file an appeal within 10 days of their arrest. The state recently changed this law to feature a 30-day requirement. This limit means that those accused of a DUI have only 30 days to obtain the help of an Atlanta DUI attorney and appeal the suspension of their license.

Penalties for Specific Violation Amounts

Like many other states, penalties for DUI charges are influenced by how many times an individual has been convicted of a DUI in the past.

First-time offenses:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to one year of license suspension
  • Fines up to $1,000

Second-time offenses:

Third-time offenses:

  • Up to one year in jail
  • Up to 5 years of license suspension
  • Fines up to $5,000
  • Installation of IID

Fourth-time offenses:

  • Up to 5 years in jail
  • Up to 5 years of license suspension
  • Fines up to $5,000
  • Installation of IID

If you are facing a fourth DUI offense, it will be charged as a felony, so you’ll need the defense of an experienced attorney who will fight to acquit you or have your charges reduced or dropped. However, you should not hire an attorney only for felony DUI charges. Every DUI charge benefits from the help of an Atlanta DUI lawyer. An attorney will ensure that your rights are protected and will fight to make sure you do not lose your driving privileges.

DUI charges can damage your ability to make a living and may even harm your reputation in the community—our firm will fight to protect your name and freedom.
