New information in DUI arrest may help criminal defense

It was recently reported that a Georgia woman was arrested because she caused am accident that tragically killed a 5-year-old child. The woman was charged with DUI. It was noted that she was a mental health professional that assisted patients battling substance abuse. Now, it seems she may have a very solid explanation when she is able to present a criminal defense. 

Candidate cites political motives during criminal defense

Even if convicted of a misdemeanor crime, Georgia residents can face serious punishments, including jail time. Recently, a man running for public office found himself needing to present a criminal defense after he was convicted of a first offense DUI. Though he stated he had not consumed any alcohol for several hours prior to driving, a breathalyzer test indicated that he was still slightly over the legal limit, and he was later convicted in court. 

What happens to my license in a DUI arrest?

Among the various penalties that come with charges of driving under the influence, one that most Georgia residents dread is a license suspension or revocation. Having no license means you must find an alternate means of transportation like a bus station or working out a carpool schedule with a friend or co-worker.
