Statham Law

I was convicted of a second DUI in barrow county. My fine was set at $1000, and added surcharges and court costs. I have read typical estimates at 15-25% of the original fine. My probation company says that I owe over $2000 after initial fines, surcharges, and court costs. They have not been willing to give me a full itemized breakdown of where the extra $1000 are coming from. What rights do I have, if they are overcharging me?
They are right. Court costs and surcharges on a DUI fine of $1,000 is going to bring the total up to approximately $2,000.
I was in an accident on my way to work after I lost traction due to bald tires and I was arrested for dui. The reason I was arrested for the dui was because the officer heard me tell the ems what medications I was prescribed and then the officer asked me if I had taken them that morning. I told him no because I hadn't (one of my prescriptions is a narcotic) I have never been in trouble before, the officer performed a breathalizer, and the ems took blood samples. The officer never told me that I was under arrest for dui, nor did he read me any kind of rights, not even after he handcuffed me. I went for my arraignment today and the said they still didn't have my blood results back and it would be another 4 1/2 months till they would receive them so technically I'm still out on bond. HELP!!
