Your Cohesive Defense For DUI Charges
Driving under the influence is one of the most common criminal offenses. However, you should not underestimate their severity. If the state has charged you with DUI, you would be wise to work with a lawyer who can shield you from the potential consequences.
We at Agricola Law, LLC, are the strong attorneys to represent you. With extensive experience in both Alabama and Georgia criminal law, we can mount a comprehensive defense to your DUI or DWI charges.
DUI And DWI Charges In Georgia And Alabama: What To Know
Alabama and Georgia do not distinguish between DUI and DWI. Though people sometimes use the terms interchangeably in conversation, the court recognizes only DUI as a formal charge.
If a law enforcement officer finds that you have any controlled substances in your system or a blood alcohol content (BAV) of .08 or higher (or at least .04 for a commercial driver and an amount for an underage driver), you may be charged with a DUI. The penalties for a conviction may include:
- License suspension or revocation
- Expensive fines
- Installation of an interlock ignition device
- Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
- Community service
- Jail time
