Getting a DUI is something no one expects to happen, yet oftentimes many people find themselves with handcuffs around their wrists worrying about what is going to happen. People get DUIs all the time. It is a common traffic crime. With the fear of personal repercussions you may be concerned about what is going to happen to you. Here is a general idea.
In most states, a DUI arrest results in two hearings. One hearing is with the criminal court and the other is with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
After your DUI arrest, you must schedule a hearing with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. You must do this right away. In many states, you have ten days to schedule your hearing or your license will be taken away.
You will then report to criminal court for your arraignment. The judge will read the charges that are against you and you may be expected to issue a plea. The court will set up your trial date and it is during your court trial where it will be decided if charges will be pressed or dismissed.
A DMV and court hearing can be very intimidating situations, but the good news is that you do not have to go through these processes alone. The smartest thing you can do after a DUI arrest is to hire an experienced DUI lawyer to fight your charges. You made one mistake and you have too much to lose if you decide to plead guilty and not fight your charges. A skilled DUI attorney has the knowledge to fight your charges and help you maintain your driving privileges and freedom.
