Have you been arrested for DUI on a Georgia college campus?

If you’ve been arrested for DUI on a college campus or are facing charges of drunk driving from an arrest on a Georgia university campus, be it The University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Emory Kennesaw State, University of West Georgia,  or while at another  college or university here in Georgia, there are number of things you need to know:

  • Colleges and universities often have separate disciplinary actions they take for students charged with DUI.  These can include suspension, expulsion or other actions affecting your enrollment in the school.  (Also, keep in mind that sometimes an off-campus DUI arrest can still impact a student’s academic status!).
  • Procedures, including hearings and deadlines, can vary for a DUI arrest made on a Georgia college or university campus.
  • The fact that a DUI arrest was made by a campus law enforcement official can open up additional legal defenses not available for an off-campus arrest.
  • If you are under 21, different laws may apply to you, including thresholds for blood alcohol content, length of license suspension, and an additional charge of possession of alcohol by a minor.

The most important thing you can do is hire a qualified and experienced attorney to represent you or your child/student.

The experienced trial lawyers at Chestney & Sullivan have successfully represented students charged with DUI at Emory, Georgia State, University of Georgia, Kennesaw State, Mercer, University of West Georgia, Georgia College in Milledgeville, and Georgia Tech.
