Drivers in Alpharetta & Peachtree Corners, GA, as well as throughout north Fulton County and Gwinnett County, are shocked sometimes to learn that being pulled over for drunk driving leads to their arrest on felony grounds. Drunk driving seems like it should be a misdemeanor. What happened?
Felony DUI usually means there was an aspect to the case that police felt merited a harsher charge:
We at Green & Delan, LLC, tell all our DUI clients, even first-time offenders, that they cannot afford conviction. Penalties are much more severe at the felony DUI level. You may well do serious time, and in a state prison, not a local jail. You can imagine how a felony on your record will affect your ability to find work. No one wants to hire a known felon.
DUI law is something of a disgrace. Most drivers pulled over never cause any harm to another person. But because the offense is unpopular with the public, penalties and associated costs seem to rise every year.
