Defending a DUI charge that was filed against an out of state resident is as important as for those that live in Forsyth County, Georgia. 48 States have compacts between them in which your home state would be informed of your conviction. As a result, you will likely face the penalties imposed by Georgia law when you return to your home state. So you can be punished in a Georgia Court, and your license can then be suspended by your home state. The stakes are higher for out of state drivers who get an arrest in Georgia. Out of state drivers face penalties in two states. They will have to reinstate the privilege to drive in Georgia as well as their license to drive in their home state. The legal team at the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson is prepared to review the details of your case and advise you how to move forward with a defense strategy to fight the serious penalties imposed by Georgia State Law and the licensing consequences in your home state.
