DUI Attorney Fees in Georgia
One of the first expenses you’ll incur as a result of your conviction is a fine of $300 or more, depending on the nature of your offense and your prior criminal history. You’ll also be responsible for the cost of attending any programs required in your sentence, such as DUI school, counseling, or substance abuse treatment—each of which can cost hundreds of dollars in enrollment fees. Plus, if you are placed on probation (which is quite likely), you may have to pay a monthly fee for the duration of your sentence.
In addition to the above penalties, you can expect to spend a minimum of 24 hours behind bars and perform at least 40 hours of community service. Given the amount of time it takes to complete these requirements, you’ll probably need to take off work—which may reduce your paycheck. Of course, with all of your other financial obligations, now’s certainly not a good time to suffer a loss in income.
Once you’ve fulfilled the terms of your sentence, you may face further expenses due to your conviction. For example, obtaining affordable auto insurance will be almost impossible, as most companies will charge you two to three times more for coverage and others may refuse to insure you altogether. And, your conviction can also jeopardize countless employment, housing, and financial opportunities, as the fact that you were found guilty of drunk driving will be reflected on your criminal record permanently.
