DUI is unlike any crime in the State of Georgia. DUI is a crime of opinion. When an officer makes an arrest, it is his opinion that the person arrested was driving under the influence. The attorneys at Brown, Barbour, & Thrailkill, P.C. have extensive experience fighting that opinion.
DUI offenses are treated much more harshly than other misdemeanors in this State. Certain benefits (such as the ability for an arrest to come off of your permanent criminal record) are not afforded in DUI cases. DUI offenses carry mandatory driver’s license suspension, jail time, and community service.
