DUI convictions are extremely serious and should not be taken lightly. From incarceration to fines, the consequences can life-lasting.

In Georgia, a first time offense of DUI can get a one year driver’s license suspension, up to a year of incarceration, and mandatory attendance in a Risk Reduction School. Any convictions within ten years of the previous will ensue extremely severe consequences.

A 2nd DUI conviction brings criminal penalties up to $1,000 in fine (plus high probation fees), up to a year in jail (at least 72 hours in prison, the rest can be served as probation), mandatory alcohol evaluation and a license plate confiscation.

Your photo and disposition will be placed in the county paper and your driver’s license can be suspended for up to three years.

A 3rd conviction will bring even worse consequences, with the exception that you will now be declared a habitual violator and will be required to install an Ignition Interlock Device into your vehicle.

A 4th conviction will be charged as a felony. For this, you will be at risk of receiving up to five years in jail (with all but 90 days served as probation).

You will also face a $5,000 monetary fine and be at risk of seizure and forfeiture of your motor vehicle. The requirements of all previous convictions will also put you at risk.
