In Georgia, it is common for an officer to write more than one ticket for a single arrest.  Just because you got more than one DUI ticket does not automatically mean you could, or would be convicted of more than one DUI.

Normally, a person can be convicted of only one DUI at a time, however, there are multiple ways the State can try and prove that one DUI.  The multiple tickets you received typically refer only to the manner in which the State may try to prove the single act.  For instance, if you submitted to the officer’s breath test, he may have given you a ticket that references “DUI less safe” as well as a “DUI per se” ticket.  Or, the tickets may reference A(1) and A(5).
