In Georgia, a first offense for driving under the influence (DUI) charge is a misdemeanor offense.

A DUI charge can result from a variety of circumstances including:

  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol
  • Driving while under the influence of illicit or prescription drugs
  • Driving under the influence of toxic vapors
  • Driving while under the influence of a combination of any of the above

DUI is considered a very serious crime and a first offense can be punishable by up to a year in jail and can result in fines between $300 and $1,000. A DUI conviction can threaten academic and professional reputation and could result in loss of a driver’s license for up to a year.
