Felony DUI in Georgia

Is DUI a Felony in GA?

DUI legislation significantly increased the penalties for drunk driving offenses in Georgia. In 2008, the Georgia 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 in Georgia may also result if it is proven an individual was DUI and caused an accident in which others are seriously injured or killed.

Anyone facing a felony DUI in the Metro Atlanta area needs the professional legal services of an attorney. If you or someone you know has been charged with a felony DUI, please contact Bart for an initial consultation about your case.
