Prior DUI Convictions

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 05, 2011 | 0 Comments

A DUI charge is scary and overwhelming, but what happens when you face more than one? Lilburn police officers, Gwinnett County Judges, and prosecuting attorneys are not sympathetic.  Gwinnett is a tough jurisdiction in which to face a DUI offense. Certain Gwinnett judges are known to give substantial jail time to DUI repeat offenders.  In addition to Georgia statutory jail time, fines, and requirements for probation increasing with subsequent DUI charges, a very troubling problem with repeat DUI offenses is the loss of a persons Georgia drivers license.  After the first DUI, the ability to get even a limited driving permit is greatly reduced.  A first DUI offense carries a one year license suspension, but a second carries a three year suspension without the availability of limited permits for much of the term.  This is why it is imperative that you seek the help of a skilled and experienced Lilburn / Gwinnett County DUI attorney as soon as possible following your DUI arrest.   Gwinnett DUI attorney Richard S. Lawson and his associated lawyers have years of experience fighting for Lilburn residents against unjust DUI prosecutions in Gwinnett County courts.  Call Mr. Lawson today for a  free case analysis and to discuss how he can get you the best possible outcome on your Lilburn / Gwinnett Co. DUI case.
