What happens at my DUI arraignment in Georgia?

An arraignment is the first court proceeding in your DUI case. You will hear the charges that are being made against you and will be given an opportunity to plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead not guilty, your attorney will be able to request any evidence that the State has in your case, which he or she can then use to begin building your defense.

How long does a DUI conviction stay on my record in GA?

Unlike some states—and even a few insurance companies—that have so-called look back periods, a DUI conviction in Georgia will stay on your record for the rest of your life. Even if your DUI was charged as a misdemeanor, your conviction will be public record, accessible by potential employers, lenders and educational institutions. A DUI conviction should be avoided at all costs.
