You drive for a living, and you love it. You worked hard to get your commercial driver's license, and you want to do everything you can to keep it. Unfortunately, you have found yourself facing a DUI charge in the state of Georgia for an incident in either your personal or professional vehicle. If convicted, you may lose your CDL and ability to drive professionally for good. What can you do?
A Georgia man is facing serious criminal charges after a fatal accident in Gwinnett County. Due to the nature of the specific charges he is up against, a strong DUI defense strategy may be necessary. After the accident, the charges against him included DUI and following too closely. However, charges were upgraded from serious injury by vehicle to vehicular homicide after a person hurt in the accident was declared brain dead by doctors and passed away.
Georgia drivers facing drunk driving charges have every right to defend themselves against the formal accusations. A conviction can result in fines, loss of driving privileges and more, and there is significant benefit in having a strong DUI defense strategy. However, changes in drunk driving laws in the state may mean that drivers facing DUI charges need to rethink their defense plans.
