Savannah DUI & Drug Attorneys
Putting Forth Maximum Effort to Obtain Optimal Results
Many people automatically assume that charges for “Driving Under the Influence” only refers to alcohol, but this is definitely not the case. To the surprise of many, driving while you have been taking drugs can also cause you to be charged and convicted for a DUI in Georgia. This does not merely apply to illegal drugs such as heroin, ecstasy, PCP, cocaine, or LSD. Even prescribed drugs, whether painkillers after an operation or medical marijuana for migraines can also lead to you being charged.
Call us today at (912) 417-5008 so that you can find true justice from our reliable criminal defense attorney.
The types of observations that officers usually attempt to designate whether a defendant is “high” or not include:
- A person’s driving
- The mannerisms and conduct of the person
- The person’s ability to pass normal sobriety tests like walking in a line
- The person’s ability to carry on a conversation
Avoiding the Penalties of Conviction
As you can see, the supposed proof that a person is under the influence of drugs is entirely up to the testimony of the police officer. In many cases, that officer’s witness could be subjective and mistaken, either purposefully or accidentally. Regardless of the intention, the penalties are very harsh. Even your first conviction means that you must at least pay $300 and spend a day in jail. You could also spend many months on probation, studying late at night in DUI schools, or taking constant evaluation for drug tests.
