The state of Georgia takes drunk driving very seriously. As such, driving under the influence (DUI) is classified as a criminal offense. If you are convicted of DUI in Gordon County, you face a number of harsh penalties, including fines, license suspension, and/or jail time. With such life-altering consequences at stake, it’s easy to see why so many drivers choose to obtain legal representation after being arrested for driving under the influence—and as one of the nation’s leading DUI defense experts, there’s no better choice for your legal needs than Gordon County DUI attorney William C. Head.
Criteria For Being Charged With A DUI
Under state law, a driver is considered under the influence of alcohol if the amount of alcohol in his or her bloodstream (a percentage known as blood alcohol content, or BAC) is 0.08% or higher. On the other hand, even if your BAC is under the legal limit, you could still face DUI charges if the prosecution can prove that your ability to drive was impaired at the time of your arrest. In order to do this, however, the arresting officer must establish probable cause for stopping you, as well as for suspecting you of DUI; otherwise, the charges against you will be dismissed.
Even if the charges against you are warranted, an experienced DUI defense attorney can evaluate the circumstances of your arrest to determine a strong defense strategy. As Georgia’s reigning expert on DUI law, William C. Head is well-versed in the most successful tactics for challenging a drunk driving charge.
Since 1976, Mr. Head has helped countless drivers avoid the life-altering consequences of a DUI conviction—in fact, he’s written over a dozen books on DUI law, and his defense tactics are employed by attorneys across the nation.
