Reducing a Georgia DUI to Reckless Driving
With penalties such a jail time, a driver’s license suspension, community service, and fines, it is easy to see that a DUI conviction has the potential to substantially impact your life. However, a reckless driving offense does not carry all of these serious penalties; in fact, you may not even face a suspended driver’s license if you plead down to reckless driving and are over the age of 21.
Reducing a DUI to reckless driving does carry a six-month license suspension for underage drivers. This penalty can work in your favor, as prosecutors may be more willing to take the DUI charge off of the table in exchange for the license suspension.
By reducing your DUI to reckless driving, you can also avoid a criminal record that can affect your current and future employment. While some employers refuse to extend job offers to DUI offenders, this does not seem to be the case with a reckless driving charge.
