i was charged with DUI and improper lane change , can I GET FIRST OFFENDERS ACT ON THIS , THIS WAS IN THOMPSON , GA IN MCDUFFIE CO .
Just in case you may have used one term thinking it meant something else, I would just add that you are eligible for a "certificate of first conviction" which allows you to obtain a limited driving permit. First offender status is reserved for felonies and misdemeanor drug charges.
In most criminal case you could get 1st Offender treatment. However, you have been charged with DUI and 1st Offender is SPECIFICALLY NOT ALLOWED in DUI cases in Georgia. It is possible for you to get a Limited Driving Permit if this is your first DUI and it is not considered to be a REFUSAL. I would advise you to retain the best DUI Defense Attorney that is available to you ASAP!!!! It is much better to FIGHT AND WIN than to be Convicted of DUI. Please take my advise and at least talk to an experienced DUI Defense Attorney about your case before you decide to simply plead guilty and have the conviction haunt you for the rest of your life!!!! I hope this information has been helpful. Good Luck!!! George McCranie www.mccranielawfirm.com
