Also, you may want to go to the website for the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (GACDL) and search the member directory for a GACDL attorney in your area.
Apply for a public defender or try to come up with the fees to hire an attorney. You are going to be facing significant consequences on this case. Depending on the facts, you may have more options than you think.
Presenting your case to the DA without an attorney is not recommended. You are charged with a crime and as you should know, anything you say can and will be used against you.
