A first offense misdemeanor DUI charge is daunting enough, but there are other situations when a DUI related charge is much more severe and life changing. Some DUI incidents lead to motor vehicle accidents where people are injured. Sometimes, other drivers, pedestrians, or passengers are even killed. Alpharetta prosecutors will likely charge the driver with vehicular homicide in such a situation. When a driver has many prior offenses, this may affect the penalties in a DUI case or make them treated as a habitual violater. In addition, DUIs have more severe punishments if minor children are in the vehicle.
Obviously, the above referenced cases are very serious and require special attention. Contacting an experienced Fulton County / Alpharetta area DUI attorney immediately is a necessity in these kind of cases.
