Every person can make serious mistakes. When someone is accused of violating Georgia law multiple times, the consequences become more serious.

Georgia State's DUI Lookback Period

In Georgia, there is a "lookback" period often years for DUI-related violations. To think of it another way, a DUI charge will be "active" on your record for 10 years. This means that if you were arrested in 2015 for a DUI and were also arrested in 2006 for a DUI, your penalties will escalate.

Penalties tend to scale predictably, with a first-time violation being the least severe:

  • First offense:Up to one year in jail, $300 to $1,000 in fines, and up to one year of license suspension.
  • Second offense:Up to one year in jail, $600 to $1,000 in fines, and three years of license suspension.
  • Third offense:At least two weeks in jail, $1,000 to $5,000 in fines, five years of license suspension, and an ignition interlock device.
  • Fourth offense:One to five years in prison, a $5,000 fine, a permanent license revocation, and an ignition interlock device installed onto any vehicle you operate.

Other consequences could befall you on a conviction for any violation, such as community service and enrollment in DUI risk reduction programs.

What Can Be Done to Defend Yourself?

It is important to realize that each DUI charge is unique. Oftentimes law enforcement agencies will look at your case as if each violation is identical. There is considerable weakness in this assumption.
