Atlanta state police can arrest drunk drivers in the city, or the local Marietta Police can also stop drivers and make arrests.
Options After a DUI
A Marietta DUI could be resolved through a dismissal of charges, an acquittal, a guilty plea, or a conviction. The approach you take following your arrest can determine which of these options is most likely in your situation.
You can work with a DUI lawyer to challenge the prosecutor’s case, demonstrate reasonable doubt to a judge or jury, and even exclude evidence from being used if it was obtained illegally. Your attorney could also work with a prosecutor to try to work out a favorable plea deal wherein guilt is admitted in exchange for a prosecutor’s reducing penalties.
Hawkins Spizman Kilgo helps you to select the approach that makes sense based on the nature of the evidence against you. We provide representation to clients who have been charged with breath test refusal; drunk driving; underage DUI; vehicular homicide; commercial license DUI; and underaged possession of alcohol. Our defense is customized to your situation and our goal is to protect your future.
