DUI Proceedings

Proceedings in a DUI case consist of an administrative hearing with the DMV, if timely requested, and the criminal process. All of these can and should be handled by a Hesperia DUI attorney:

  • The DMV hearing. You have only 10 days to request a hearing or your license will be immediately suspended. Your Hesperia DUI attorney can challenge probable cause in stopping, detaining and arresting you and whether your BAC results were 0.08%.

  • Arraignment. Your Hesperia DUI attorney will plead you not guilty and continue investigating your case.

  • Trial preparation. Your Hesperia DUI attorney can bring motions to contest probable cause, suppress evidence and others. A conference is also held with the prosecutor where your Hesperia DUI attorney will try to negotiate a plea arrangement.

  • Trial. If no plea agreement is reached, your Hesperia DUI attorney is fully prepared to take your case to trial.

Should your Hesperia DUI attorney prevail before the DMV, you stand an excellent chance of having your DUI dismissed or your charges amended to a minor non-alchol related offense.

Winning a DUI Case

DUI cases can be won. Your Hesperia DUI lawyer will generally review 3 main areas in fashioning a defense:

  • Rights violations. Police have to follow certain procedures in stopping and detaining, questioning and arresting you or your case could be dismissed.

  • Chemical test violations. There are numerous ways to challenge a breath or blood test that your Hesperia DUI lawyer can review.

  • Inconsistencies and errors in police reports, testimony and other evidence.

If police misconduct occurred or negligence was committed in your stop and arrest and in the manner your chemical tests were conducted, an Hesperian DUI lawyer will uncover it.
