In the Henry County State Court, DUI sentences are based on a system of grids. The grids weigh both the defendant’s criminal history and the circumstances of the offense. If you plead guilty and actively pursue rehabilitation, an effective lawyer might persuade the judge to sentence you one square to the left of the presumptive sentence. If you are convicted after a jury trial, the court will move one or more squares to the right of the usual sentence. If the judge thinks you perjured yourself at your trial, you will get hammered.
