DUI Georgia Fourth Offense
If you have been arrested for a fourth driving under the influence offense in Georgia, you may be surprised to learn that you could face a felony charge if all of your DUIs occurred after July 2008. Even if they occurred before this date, you will face serious consequences that have the potential to drastically impact your life. Knowing what is at stake, you can see why speaking with a qualified lawyer about your DUI Georgia fourth offense is highly recommended.

If you are facing a felony DUI Georgia fourth offense, you could be sentenced to serve time in prison rather than jail. In addition, you will have a five-year probation period upon your release. Alcohol treatment, community service, fines, and court costs could also be ordered as part of your sentence.

For a fourth offense, your license could be suspended or even revoked by the Department of Driver Services (DDS) for a significant amount of time. In order to reinstate your driving privileges, you may be required to attend an alcohol education program as well as pay to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle. This device measures your blood alcohol content (BAC) before the vehicle is able to start. The court may also ask you to surrender the tags for all vehicles registered in your name, though a hardship application may be submitted if a family member depends on the vehicle.

If you are charged as a felon, you will face steep consequences down the road. Convicted felons are prohibited from working in certain fields, such as education or government and are prohibited from voting or owning firearms. You could also face difficulties when applying for school, loans, or even housing.
