What is the Court Process for DUI?

Know What to Expect if Arrested in Reno

After being arrested and booked for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, your first court appearance will feature the arraignment, which is a hearing where the formal charges will be read to you and you will be asked to either plead guilty or not guilty. Should you choose to plead guilty, the judge will issue his/her sentence. If you plead not guilty, a trial date will be set.

The next phase of the process consists of the preliminary hearing. The preliminary hearing can be used to enter a plea bargain, as well as provides your attorney the opportunity to cross examine witnesses and challenge key components of the arrest such as the field sobriety test.

Going to Trial

The entire case can be thrown out during the preliminary hearing or key evidence can be ruled inadmissible during the actual trial. The trial can either be a jury trial, where a jury determines your guilt or innocence, of a bench trial where the judge alone will determine your innocence or guilt. Regardless of whether a case is decided by a bench trial or jury trial, you have the right to appeal a guilty verdict to a higher court.
