What You Can Expect After Being Arrested With OUI
If a police officer stops you and accuses you of drunk driving, he or she
may confiscate your license & send it to the RMV. The RMV will suspend
your license after 30 days unless you are able to defend yourself at your
hearing. This process is entirely separate from the criminal process.
The criminal process will begin with an arraignment hearing, where you
will be informed of the charges against you and be given the opportunity
to plea guilty. At this point, you and your lawyer may also be able to
get the case dismissed. If you do not plead guilty, then you and your
legal counsel can begin building a defense strategy. During this phase,
your attorney can also file motions & request certain hearings that
may be able to help your case. You can also make a plea bargain with the
prosecution to reduce your sentence.
If your case isn't resolved in the pre-trial phase, your case will
go to trial. A jury will decide if you are not guilty or guilty and the
judge will provide a sentence (if applicable).
