Anthony,

Thank you for your follow-up. Under O.C.G.A. Section 40-6-391 the look-back period for DUI is 10 years. Since this occurred within 7 years, it would be considered a 2nd offense and consequently would have enhanced penalties. Please follow the link below where you can find all of the specific conditions and penalties for a 2nd offense:
