DMV Hearings

One aspect of DUI cases that many individuals do not consider is the DMV hearing. This hearing will be help by the Department of Motor Vehicles to determine the suspension of your Colorado driver’s License. Driver’s license suspension is a common penalty for DUI, but a separate hearing must be conducted to address this, this penalty cannot be imposed during the criminal proceeding. Your DUI defense lawyer will also represent you during this hearing to give you the best chance at retaining your driving privileges.

The other hearing your attorney will help you with is the criminal hearing. This will be held to determine whether you are guilty or innocent of DUI, and what your sentence will be if you are in fact convicted. This process will begin with the arraignment, at which time your lawyer will enter your plea of guilty, not guilty or no contest. Negotiations with the prosecution will then take place and during this time your attorney will try to have your charges reduced or dismissed, or will attempt to argue you a lesser sentence. After this, the trial will be held where a judge will be presented with evidence and witness testimony to help them decide a verdict.
