The Presumption of Innocence

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

One of the worst things about being arrested for DUI in Dacula / Gwinnett County Georgia - maybe even worse than that cozy night spent at the jail - is the stigma associated with being accused of a crime.  In this country, we are innocent until proven guilty.  The prosecuting lawyers for  Gwinnett County must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  This is a very high burden of proof.  However, there are now websites and magazines that profile people's mugshots and list details of the Dacula or Gwinnett DUI arrest.  Even more problematic is that a DUI case lingers on for a long time.  People who are applying for jobs or schools will often have the arrest showing up on their background search and will be penalized for it even though they plan on contesting and beating the charge.  What is important to know is that if you are convicted of a DUI, it is on your record forever and is not eligible for expungement at any point.  That is why it is important to contest your case if you are unfairly prosecuted.  Our Dacula DUI lawyers can help you do that.  Attorney Lawson and his associate attorneys have successfully resolved thousands of cases.   Call their Gwinnett County law office today to get your Dacula DUI questions answered.
