DUI Reduction in Chatham County, GA
Can you get a DUI reduced in Chatham County?
It is very common for clients to ask whether or not I believe they can get a DUI in Chatham County reduced down to a reckless driving charge. While it is possible, Chatham County has become particularly tough on DUIs.
DUI vs. Reckless Driving
Often, the difference between a DUI and a reckless driving charge can be the speed at which an attorney starts on the case. The faster that an aggressive attorney starts on the case, the more likely it is that the charge can be reduced. It is also very helpful to file motions to suppress and dismiss the case in order to show the prosecution early on that they are in for a fight if they don’t reduce the charge.
While it is possible to have a DUI reduced in Chatham County, the penalties can often be the same. Long terms of probation, heavy fines, and numerous hours of community service could still accompany a reduced charge.
A reckless driving charge can still seriously impact your life. At The Turner Firm, we fight DUIs to try and get them dismissed completely. Call us today to learn how we can help you fight your charge.
