Strickland v. State

Strickland v. State

Case Year: 
2010
State of Origin: 
Georgia

Restrictions placed on the defendant’s driving privileges and the requirements that she install an ignition interlock device in her vehicle and submit to a Driving Under the Influence Court evaluation are not punishment. Considering defendant's three prior convictions for driving while under the influence, these measures are rationally related to an alternative purpose as they are designed to prevent the defendant from being a danger to the community by committing future acts of driving under the influence while she was awaiting trial.
