Every criminal case comes to a different outcome. Some cases go to trial and the defendant is found not guilty and other cases are resolved by plea bargain and probation. The way you handle the defense of your case depends on the specific facts involved and also on the defense attorney you use. In order to reach a conclusion that makes sense it is critical to partner with a criminal defense attorney that is knowledgeable in the area of law your case falls into and has experience defending matters like yours.
For a DUI case you will want to make sure that your driver’s license is protected and that you are able to stay out of jail. The three most common ways to accomplish these goals and resolve a DUI case include:
- Going on probation, which will require you to stay out of trouble and not get any more tickets for the entire time you, are on probation. It is also likely you will have to install an interlock device on your car, which is a device that requires you to blow into it before your car will start. If alcohol is detected on your breath, your car will not start.
- Asking for a review of the suspension of your driver’s license. Every DUI case comes with an automatic license suspension, but that does not mean you cannot ask for the right to drive to be restored or at least modified. The request has to be made within ten days of your arrest though, or it will not be considered.
- Agreeing to go to driving and/or drug and alcohol school. This is usually a probationary requirement and can keep you out of jail.
