Driving under the influence of alcohol, or DUI, is a serious crime in Gilmer County, Georgia. A DUI conviction can often carry a hefty fine, long license suspension, and even jail time. What’s more, along with any sentence imposed by the court, you may face problems in your personal life as well, since a DUI conviction can threaten countless employment and housing opportunities in the future.
Fortunately, being charged with DUI does not mean you will actually be convicted in court. First, the state must prove that you are guilty of driving under the influence—and it can be extremely difficult for the prosecution to do that when you obtain representation from one of the nation’s top DUI defense attorneys, William C. (Bubba) Head.
A Charge Does Not Mean A Guilty Conviction
Before a person can be convicted of drunk driving, the officer who arrested you must establish probable cause for his or her actions. In other words, the officer must prove that he or she had a valid reason for stopping you initially, as well as for suspecting you of 374driving under the influence. If both of these requirements are not met, the charges against you should be dismissed as a result.
Of course, even if your arrest was warranted, an experienced attorney can still find ways to challenge your DUI. As the author of Georgia’s leading treatise on DUI law, attorney William C. Head literally wrote the book on DUI defense—in fact, he’s written more than a dozen books on the subject and his trial tactics are employed by countless attorneys across the nation. You may have even seen him on many evening news programs, where he is often invited to comment on stories involving DUI issues.
