Attorney Larry Yarbrough devotes fully half of his work in the criminal defense arena to representing clients who have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Although the specifics of these cases may vary widely, as a general rule, to be guilty of Georgia DUI, you must be found to have been unsafely operating a motor vehicle due to the influence of alcohol or another controlled or toxic substance, including prescription medications and marijuana. While operating a car, a person can be guilty of DUI if his or her B.A.C. (blood alcohol concentration) reaches .08% within three hours after being stopped by the police. If the defendant was operating a commercial vehicle, this drops down to .04%; if he or she is under the age of 21, the threshold is lower still, standing at .02%.
A DUI charge can lead to substantial fines and may be devastating to your reputation. To find out how Mr. Yarbrough can help you or your loved one mitigate or avoid these consequences, contact his Marietta law office today at (770) 427-8453 for a free half-hour consultation.
