What penalties am I facing?
Penalties for multiple DUI convictions get increasingly worse. You should
be aware that Georgia has a 10 year “lookback” period, which
means all convictions within this time will be counted as subsequent offenses.
Punishments for subsequent convictions include:
—3 days to 1 year in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, 3 years’
—15 days to 1 year in jail, $1,000 to $5,000 in fines, 5 years’
th (felony) DUI
—1 to 5 years in jail, $1,000 to $5,000 in fines, indefinite suspension
of your license
After your second conviction, you will also be required to pay for the
installation and maintenance of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in
your vehicle in order to prevent future drunk driving. You still have
rights no matter how many DUIs you have been convicted of in the past.
If police acted improperly in stopping you or arresting you, you could
have your charges dismissed. Police must have probable cause in the first
place to stop you and may not pull you over on a hunch or at random. Furthermore,
breathalyzer machines are not perfect and can malfunction if not properly
