Maximum penalties vary widely in the state of Georgia. People who are charged and convicted of DUI for a first offense can face several days in jail, a restriction of their driving privileges, and the requirement to attend classes and perform community service. Some or all of these restraints can be listed in many instances for a first offense if a person does not have anything else on their criminal record. More offenses obviously mean higher maximum sentences. The amount of maximum jail time that a person can face, along with the amount of time that their license will be suspended, is determined by the number of DUIs they have had. After four of these convictions, many individuals will suffer a permanent suspension of service.
