Last week in Santa Monica, actress Jaime Pressly was sentenced on her conviction for DUI charges. Pressly, star of the television series "My Name is Earl," was arrested several months ago on suspicion of DUI after failing several field sobriety tests. She entered a plea of Nolo to the DUI charges and was sentenced to 3 years of probation, alcohol and drug treatment classes, and an ignition interlock device is to be installed in her vehicle.
All of these requirements - DUI probation, alcohol and drug treatment classes, and and ignition interlock device - are standard in Gwinnett County DUI sentences. In Gwinnett, a DUI offender faces very serious potential consequences, even if it is a first DUI. Jail time is always a possibility and probation can be expensive, lengthy, and contain many requirements of course, treatment, and community service. A suspension of one's Georgia drivers license ( as well as other sanctions such as an ignition interlock device) are also a regular requirement. That is why it is important to contact a skilled Gwinnett County DUI lawyer as soon as possible following your DUI arrest. A DUI conviction is forever, so it should not be entered into without talking to a lawyer first about the ramifications of a plea of guilty.
