The first important court date is your arraignment. You are given a copy of the formal charges filed against you (and occasionally the police report). You are then asked to plead guilty, not guilty or no contest. Finally, you are given a date for your next court appearance.
Things that Matter:
- DUI laws are complicated. It is important to take the time to understand the laws and/or consult with an attorney.
- Make sure you appear at every court date for which you are scheduled.
- MyDUIsolution does not recommend representing yourself in court.
MyDUIsolution strongly advises you to consult with a DUI lawyer to help decide on a plea is appropriate for your situation.
