Another DUI Charge Could Put Your Future At Risk
As with many other criminal offenses, the number of times an individual repeats a DUI offense correlates directly with the severity of the punishment. In Georgia, there are minimum mandatory penalties for repeat DUI offenders:
- Second-offense DUI: minimum sentence 90 days (72 hours must be served in jail); minimum $600 fine; mandatory community service; 3-year license suspension; other penalties*
- Third-offense DUI: minimum sentence 120 days (15 days must be served in jail); minimum $1000 fine; mandatory community service; 5-year license suspension; other penalties*
- Fourth-offense DUI (felony DUI): minimum sentence 1 year (90 days must be served in jail); minimum $1000 fine; mandatory community service; 5-year license suspension; other penalties*
