Driving Under the Influence "DUI"

As with traffic citations, a DUI charge can have serious implications. The legal blood-alcohol concentration limit in Georgia must be less than 0.02 (if under 21), 0.08 (if 21 or older), and 0.04 (if commercial driver) grams. For a first-time conviction, you could be looking at a fine up to $1,000.00. Furthermore, you could be facing a lengthy period of probation, and even potential jail time. A DUI conviction could have even broader implications. For example, if you have been divorced or are going through a divorce, a DUI conviction can have a serious impact on the determination of custody.
