Dunwoody DUI offenses

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 09, 2011 | 0 Comments

The city of Dunwoody has a police force, court system, prosecuting attorneys, and judges all of its own.  Dunwoody officers charge offenders with crimes such as DUI, possession of marijuana, minor in possession, shoplifting, trespass, traffic offenses, public drunk, open container, as well as other violations of city ordinances.  The fines on these offenses can be very high and there can even be jail time, probation, and the loss of your Georgia drivers license.

A driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol charge can be particulary devastating.  Not only is it embarrassing and expensive, but it can cause people to lose their jobs or not get accepted into certain schools or training programs.  While Dunwoody police officers and prosecuting attorneys are aggressive in pursing DUI convictions, a skilled Dunwoody DUI lawyer can help get the charges reduced or even beaten altogether.  For example, a Dunwoody officer cannot just stop you at random for a DUI.  He needs to observe something like failure to maintain your lane in order to pull over your car.  He also cannot just arrest you for DUI without probable cause.  There are certain procedures he needs to follow and if he does not, then the arrest may not be valid.  Furthermore, the results of a breath test may not be usable in court either.

If you are facing a DUI charge, call Dunwoody DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today for a consultation.
