Second DUI in Georgia

Are the Penalties for a Second DUI in Georgia More Severe?

In the state of Georgia, lawmakers are particularly harsh on those who have been accused of driving under the influence (DUI). For this reason, the penalties that are imposed on convicted offenders are typically quite severe. Even for a first time-offense, one could expect to face up to 12 months in jail and a $1,000 fine, so you can imagine that the consequences of a second offense are even steeper. It is for this reason that you should enlist the help of a second DUI defense lawyer from the Schneider Law Firm if you or someone you love has been charged as a repeat offender.
