The DUI (Driving Under the Influence) process begins the moment the police officer suspects impaired driving.
The DUI charge itself is a criminal charge. At court, the driver will appear in front of a judge and will be advised of the charge.
Petition for Your License
Within 90 days of an arrest, the driver can petition the court for a hearing to rescind the suspension and must additionally be provided a hearing within 30 days of filing or on the initial court date.
Post Trial and Sentencing
If the finding is not guilty, the driver will be discharged without consequence. If the finding is guilty, a sentence hearing will be held.
