For some, having a week off from school can lead to trouble. If you experience any of the following issues this spring, you should contact our office to discuss your bail bond options.

DUI

The letters DUI (or sometimes DWI) refer to the illegal act of driving a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs. DUI stands for “driving under the influence” and DWI means “driving while intoxicated.” Generally, DUI charges depend on the level of impairment indicated by the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the arrest. Because drunk driving endangers everybody on the road, not just the drunk driver, many states in the U.S. enforce a zero tolerance policy. Georgia is one of those states. Around here, even a very small BAC can result in serious legal consequences and the need for a bail bond. In Georgia, a DUI conviction will stay on your driving record for the rest of your life. You should know the BAC limit that applies to you – 0.02% if you’re under 21 and, in the end, if you do experience a DUI arrest, the first thing you should do is consider your bail bond options.

Unfortunately, this often leads to high school and college students who aren’t yet legally able to drink alcohol to partake in various intoxicating beverages.

Marijuana Charges

The State of Georgia takes all drug possession offenses very seriously and this includes marijuana. Much like alcohol, marijuana is often brought into spring break get-togethers. You can be charged with possession of marijuana even if you are not “holding” the drugs. If you are just “in control” of the marijuana, meaning you have anywhere within your reach on your property, you can be found to be in possession of it. Even in first offense possession situations involving less than 1 ounce of marijuana, your case may go to trial and you will potentially face mandatory drug counseling, license suspension, expensive fines and jail time. If you are caught in possession of more than one ounce, you’ll face serious felony charges. With all these possible consequences on your plate, the last thing you need to worry about is making bail.
