A DUI case is a complex matter, as various processes are involved in resolving it, and several consequences can arise upon a conviction. Immediately after your DUI arrest, your case will be sent to the DMV to determine whether your driver's license should be suspended. You can request a hearing to contest the suspension, but this must be done within 10 days; otherwise, you forfeit your ability to challenge the loss of your driving privileges.You'll also be scheduled for several court proceedings, beginning with an arraignment. Depending on the situation, the prosecutor may offer a plea bargain, or you may decide to have the matter heard by a judge or jury. If you're found guilty, you may be sentenced to jail or probation and/or fined, and suffer other consequences.
This is a substantially abbreviated description of what happens in a DUI case, but it's important to know that each step is affected by various laws and rules, which can greatly complicate things.
