Probation Violations And DUI Drug Court
If you have been convicted of a DUI crime in Georgia, you are probably on probation or participating in a DUI drug court. And if you have violated any terms of the probation or drug court, you probably understand that you are facing another criminal charge. Unfortunately, the stakes are a bit higher for you this time. When you are charged with DUI, the state has to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. However, when you violate probation or the orders of a DUI drug court, the state only has to show your guilt by a preponderance of evidence, which is a much lower legal standard of proof.
At this time, choosing an attorney is not a decision you should take lightly. You need an aggressive defense from a lawyer who focuses specifically on DUI and one who has handled these types of probation violations before. You need attorney Jeffrey Rothman.
