What are my chances of getting out of my Georgia DUI charge completely?
Many lawyers will tell you early on that they can get your DUI reduced to reckless driving or a lesser charge. That deal may seem good at first. However, it is important to note that a reckless driving charge is still very serious, and the court can impose many of the same conditions on you (such as probation or fines) that they would if you were convicted of a DUI.
Don’t Make a Deal
You should never go into a DUI case trying to “work out a deal.” It is always in your best interest to fight your charges at every step of the way. By challenging the case from the start, you make it much more likely that you will get out of your DUI charge completely. If you go into court and start asking for a plea deal, then the prosecutor already knows that you don’t want to seriously fight the DUI and you are probably unwilling to take the case to trial.
If you have a DUI, consult with an aggressive DUI attorney that can help you fight the case and try to get the charges dropped completely.
