As you might expect, what happens in court can substantially impact your DMV hearing, and vice versa. Even if you effectively resolve your case in court, your license can still be suspended or revoked by DMV. Because of this, your court and DMV cases need to be properly coordinated by a DUI Attorney.
DUI cases have unforgiving time deadlines enforced by DMV. If your driver’s license was taken by police when you were arrested, and you were provided a temporary license, a DMV Hearing request must be made quickly and properly. If your request does not comply with DMV requirements, you can lose your right to drive for a substantial period of time.
Evidence requests should also be made quickly on your behalf, to assure preservation of evidence related to your case. A delay may cause evidence favorable to your case to be unavailable in the future, and hamper your defense.
Even if you think you are guilty of DUI, there may still be effective strategies which may be appropriate for your case, and may improve your court and DMV outcomes. If you plead guilty without exploring these possibilities, the system will move forward against you, even if it otherwise would not have done so.
DUI cases are significant. They are considered criminal violations, which may carry jail time, large fines, DUI Programs, requirement of a Breath Testing Machine (IID) in your car, driver’s license suspensions, as well as potentially negative employment or immigration consequences.
You may be feeling overwhelmed and confused. George Kita can determine your best options with court and DMV, & help put your mind at ease.
