Can I Plead to "Wet Reckless" in Georgia

Plea bargaining a reduced charge in Georgia drunk driving cases.

The term, “wet reckless,” is used to describe a reduced plea arrangement made by a driver arrested for driving while intoxicated. (The driver pleads to reckless driving with alcohol involved -- hence the “wet” reference.) A charge of wet reckless typically carries fewer obligations, punishments, and costs than a traditional DUI.

Georgia Wet Reckless

Georgia is one of over a dozen states that prohibit plea bargains in DUI cases and for that reason, a wet reckless plea is not permitted in Georgia. That said, an attorney in Georgia may, in some circumstances, be able to assist in reducing charges or reducing penalties associated with a guilty plea for a DUI.
