Reno DUI Attorney: The Arraignment

Getting Arraigned for a DUI in Reno

After you have been arrested and booked for driving under the influence, you will be issued a court date. There can be multiple phases to a DUI case, but regardless of how long or short the case ends up being, the first phase is always the same; the arraignment. During the arraignment, you will be read the formal charges by the judge and will then be asked to enter your plea.

You can either plead guilty or not guilty. If you choose to plead guilty, the judge will immediately determine your sentence. If you plead not guilty, the judge will set the date for your case’s preliminary hearing. You will also have the option to represent yourself during the case, use your own attorney or have a court-appointed lawyer represent you.

Reno DUI Attorney

If you have been arrested on charges of driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, immediately contact a Reno DUI attorney. I have more than 25 years experience providing legal counsel to those who have been charged with a DUI and will fight relentlessly on your behalf. I’ll first speak with you in order to learn everything about the incident and then will conduct a thorough review of the incident to identify areas where the arresting officer may have acted improperly or violated your legal rights.

One of the key parts of the arrest is the field sobriety test, which is a series of behaviors that officers have you conduct in order to gauge if you are likely impaired. I have undergone the same training as law officers for administering the field sobriety test and am aware of the many shortcuts they take during it that may cloud their judgment and affect your case.
