If you find yourself arrested for DUI by a Canton or Cherokee County police officer, the ticket you received from the officer charges you with DUI. This arrest stays on your Georgia diving record. However, people are innocent until proven guilty. A DUI charge alone never means a conviction!
Canton soliciting attorneys are required to prove that a driver is guilty of DUI beyond a reasonable doubt to convict the driver under the law. This is a hard task. That is why they try to make plea offers. It is much easier for you to plead guilty then for you to make them convict you in a trial. Canton DUI cases are fought and won all the time by experienced Canton DUI lawyers like Richard Lawson.
However, another frequent occurrence is that people charged with DUI accept guilt and enter pleas. They often don't realize that this stays on their record forever. People often plead guilty to DUI and then years later inquire about getting the convictions expunged. This cannot be done.
Expungement is the process of having DUI convictions removed from your records. Unfortunately, a DUI conviction cannot be expunged. Convictions for DUI can have long term affects for career and educational plans. As soon as you are released from the initial jail time following your arrest, you should contact a DUI lawyer to for a consultation.
Remember, that after you enter a guilty plea, little can be done to undo it and you have a DUI conviction on your record. Call Canton DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today for a free consultation.
