Roswell DUI Jail
You may think that being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) in Roswell will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Think again—under Georgia state law, a DUI conviction can often lead to time behind bars in a Roswell DUI jail.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, as well as your prior criminal history, the penalties for drunk driving can vary greatly. However, in most cases, if you are found guilty of the offense, you can expect—at the very least—to lose your driver’s license for 90 days or more and pay hundreds of dollars in fines and penalties. What’s more, even if it is your first offense, the judge may impose up to a one-year jail sentence, as well as other punishments such as community service, mandatory alcohol counseling, and/or DUI school.
Even before your case is reviewed in criminal court, you may spend time in jail waiting for your arraignment hearing. At this time, a judge may also set bail—which means you will have to post bond before you can be released from jail. In order to do this, you must do one of three things: pay the entire amount in cash directly to the court, use your home or property as collateral for your payment, or find a commercial bondsman to post bail on your behalf (be aware that this option requires a non-refundable fee—usually a small percentage of the total bail amount). You should also know that, if you fail to appear for your scheduled court date, you will lose any collateral or money you used to pay your bail.
