Felony DUI in Georgia

Felony DUI Attorney Serving Marietta

State DUI legislation increased the penalties for drunk driving offenses in Georgia. In 2008, the George House and Senate passed House Bill 336 which calls for an automatic felony charge in the case of a fourth conviction of a DUI within 10 years. Until this law was passed, fourth DUI convictions remained a misdemeanor. The law called for heavier fines, mandatory offender evaluations for drug and alcohol treatment programs, stricter probation, and long community service penalties. Felony DUI charges may also result if an individual's driving behavior causes an accident in which others are seriously injured or killed.
