Filed Under: Atlanta DUI Arrest
I you have been arrested in Atlanta, and it’s your third DUI arrest, you NEED a Georgia DUI Lawyer. Georgia DUI law considers an Atlanta DUI third offense in ten years to be the last step before trying future convictions as felony crimes. A Georgia DUI third offense carries a mandatory 15-day jail sentence, with fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Driver’s license revocation extends for five years (if there are three convictions within five years), and community service is required for 30 days. The name, address and photo of the offender is published in a local newspaper at his or her expense.
Third offenders are declared to be habitual violators (if there are three dui convictions within five years). Their license plates are confiscated, mandatory clinical evaluation is required and the courts can require completion of a substance abuse treatment program, as well as installation of an ignition interlock device on their vehicles.
