A woman in Statham was recently banned from the city’s council meetings as well as all public property. The incident arose when she was stopped in 2015 for allegedly performing several traffic violations including driving without a license plate and traveling over the speed limit. She was subsequently arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and driving under the influence and later sued the city of Statham for violating her rights. Local officials now want to restrict the woman’s presence on city property.
Drivers in Georgia who are charged with driving under the influence can end up facing some particularly serious penalties if they are charged subsequent offenses, such as speeding. Many individuals in these situations find it helpful to obtain the assistance of an experienced attorney. This article will review some of the reasons why you should consider hiring a lawyer if you are charged with DUI or any other traffic violation, such as speeding.
