Penalties for GA DWI
In Georgia there are two levels of drinking and driving offenses. The more serious is a ‘per se’ offense where a motorist has a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher. A first offense for driving while intoxicated in Cobb County could lead to community service, fines and surcharges, jail, probation and loss of driver's license. Being found guilty of drunk driving would result in having a criminal record.
The second type of drinking and driving offense is charged if your BAC is below .08% yet an officer feels you are impaired or a ‘Less Safe’ driver. There are still strong penalties for this crime and it too should be resolved with legal consul.
Cobb County DWI attorney Marko Burgar will protect your rights and work to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
About Your Driver's License
Following an arrest for drunk driving in Marietta, the Department of Motor Vehicles will seek to suspend your driver's license. You have just 10 business days to request a hearing and seek continuance of your driving privileges. It is important to note that a recent change in state law requires payment of a $150 fee to schedule a DMV hearing. If you do not petition the DMV in time and pay the filing fee, your license will be automatically suspended.
The defense process can be difficult and the chances of keeping your license are better if you are represented by Marietta DWI attorney Marko Burgar.
