Our Lawyers Help With DUI Cases in Albany
The state of Georgia enforces harsh penalties for anyone operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Any person found to be driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .08 percent or higher can be charged with driving under the influence and face penalties. The drivers of commercial vehicles can be charged for the lower level of .04 percent, and drivers under 21 years old can be charged for a BAC level as low as .02 percent. In addition, any driver can potentially be charged with a “less safe” DUI, even if BAC is not over the legal limit. First offenders will face consequences, including jail time, fines, community service and up to a year’s suspension of their driver’s license. Repeat offenses will lead to longer jail time, bigger fines, more community service and the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device in the vehicle. A third or fourth conviction can be punishable as a felony and may lead to permanent loss of license and/or vehicle. If you find yourself in any of these situations, contact Brimberry, Kaplan & Brimberry in Albany for help.
