DUI License Suspension – What About a Delay in Prosecution?
Georgia DUI administrative license suspensions can be cruel to the inexperienced practitioner. Unfortunately, many of the lessons to be learned result from mistakes made in the past. You do not want to make a mistake when someone’s ability to drive for 12 months is on the line. One such mistake is failing to make a client aware of a possible delay in prosecution after their administrative license suspension. Assume that you have lost an administrative license suspension hearing in connection with a refusal DUI case. Many lawyers mistakenly assume that they will be able to get a trial quickly in every such case. In all actuality, if the case has yet to be accused, your client may not receive a trial for approximately 2 years. Thus, your client may suffer the entirety of the 12 month “hard” license suspension without having a trial in the case.
