Driving Under the Influence




In Georgia a felony is any crime punishable by death, more than a year in jail, or more than $1,000 in fines.  Felony convictions may affect other rights like the right to possess a firearm, the right to vote and the ability to hold certain jobs.

In Georgia a misdemeanor is an offense punishable by up to a year in jail or a fine up to $1,000.  Most misdemeanors do not impact your rights like a felony but there are exceptions.

In Georgia a DUI is considered a misdemeanor.  You may only have 10 business days to take action to prevent a license suspension. Punishments for DUIs in Georgia vary depending on how many previous DUI charges you have had, but each charge could impact your driver's license and ability to drive in Georgia.  

Suprisingly, the law of Georgia treats most traffic offenses as misdemeanors, which are crimes!

In Georgia children can also be charged with Felony and Misdemeanor violations of the law.  Even traffic violations can result in a child going before a judge in a juvenile court.

At trial there can be mistakes can be made that impact the case.  These mistakes can form the basis of an appeal.  In an appeal you ask a higher court to review the decisions that were made at trial.
