Why Choose Henrickson & Sereebutra?

What is an Aggravated DUI?

The following factors can aggravate the penalties in a DUI:

  • Minors in the Motor Vehicle: If there was a minor in the vehicle at the time of your DUI arrest, it could result in an aggravated DUI charge. Under Georgia law, a minor child is considered anyone under the age of 14.
  • Extremely High BAC Levels: The legal limit for blood alcohol content levels is .08%. If you are caught driving over that limit, you could be charged with a DUI. When drivers are tested through breathalyzer or blood tests and those tests reveal a BAC that is extremely high, you could be charged with an aggravated DUI. Extremely high BAC levels are generally considered as anything over twice the legal limit.
  • Excessive Speed: If the police caught you speeding when you were pulled over and arrested for a DUI, depending on your speed you could be faced with an aggravated DUI charge. For example, if the officer clocked you going 30 miles over the speed limit, the defendant could face much more severe penalties than if they had been driving a five or ten miles over the speed limit.
  • Suspended or Revoked License: When the DUI defendant is caught driving on a suspended or revoked license, aggravated DUI charges can incur. The law evokes further penalties for individuals caught driving under these circumstances because they have shown blatant disregard for the law.
  • Multiple DUI Convictions: Prosecutors can also push for harsher sentencing for drivers convicted of multiple DUIs. The courts give harsher penalties for repeat offenders in an effort to deter them from driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
