What to Do If Stopped on Suspicion of DUI
Obviously, drinking and driving should be avoided, however good people can and do end up in bad situations from time to time. There are things you can do if stopped for DUI, which can greatly minimize the long-term effects of your DUI charges. First and foremost, never make any admission regarding what or how much you had to drink prior to the stop. In fact, after politely giving your name and address, tell the police officer you will say nothing more until you have had the opportunity to speak to your attorney. Refuse roadside field sobriety tests. These tests are not mandatory and there are no penalties for refusal. Never consent to a search of your person or vehicle. Always ensure your registration and insurance information are readily accessible, be polite, and follow instructions (other than talking or participating in field sobriety tests).
Why You Should Never Plead Guilty to Your Milton, GA DUI Charges
Perhaps you have considered entering a guilty plea after being charged with DUI. You may have decided by doing so you can put the whole thing behind you and move on with your life. You may be embarrassed about your charges and want to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible. What you must know is that pleading guilty to Georgia DUI charges can have long-term, unintended consequences. If you don’t fight your DUI charges, you will absolutely be found guilty.
Once you are found guilty, you will be subject to any number of serious criminal penalties including jail time, fines, probation, community service, DUI School or the Risk Reduction Program, alcohol and drug evaluations and the loss of your driver’s license. Aside from criminal penalties, your auto insurance rates could significantly increase—even to the point of becoming unaffordable—and you could be unable to obtain a government student loan or a professional license.
