If you are ever charged with a DUI in Georgia but are from out of town it is very important that you have competent legal support on your side. Georgia, along with all the other states, with the exception of two, participates in the Non-Resident Driver Compact. This Compact requires your home state to impose Georgia DUI punishments if you are charged with a DUI while in Georgia. If you are arrested and charged with a DUI in Henry County but then return to your home state, you may still face Georgia penalties which include but are not limited to license suspension and jail time in your home state. You will be charged for a criminal offense in Georgia and a suspended license in your home state. To resolve this situation you have to reinstate your privilege to drive in Georgia and your actual license in your home state.
