The punishments drivers face if convicted of a DUI in Atlanta are no joke. If you are charged with driving under the influence, you will be facing jail time even for your first offense. In addition, drivers can face suspension of their driver's license, fines, community service, clinical evaluation, substance abuse counseling, completion of a risk reduction program ("DUI School") or the requirement of an ignition interlock device. We have provided some articles that will explain the punishments drivers might face if convicted, as well as what these punishments involve. These articles are only meant to serve as a summary of the penalty ranges. Because there are so many factors that courts consider when determining a sentence, it is very difficult to estimate what you might be looking at.
