My friend recently was charged with his 3rd DUI in 5 years. The first DUI was when he was 20, and the second DUI was after he had recently turned 21. He was just charged with his 3rd DUI a few weeks ago. After looking up some stuff about DUI convictions it seems like he didn't even serve the minimum sentence for the first two DUIs as required by the state of Georgia, possibly because the first two DUIs were tried together. I was wondering, realistically, what type of punishment my friend might receive - minimum and maximum. Also, if he enters alcohol rehabilitation and stays sober before his court date, how much can we expect this to impact his sentencing? Also, what kind of records should he be keeping of his sobriety - should he get a paper at his AA meetings or something? Thanks.
