DUI Sentencing in Reno

Reno DUI Attorney

After a conviction on a DUI charge, whether the conviction comes about through a guilty plea, or your attorney has arranged lesser offense in a plea bargain, or when there has been a “guilty” verdict, you move forward into the sentencing phase of the issue. In DUI cases, unless they are serious felony offenses such as DUI manslaughter or other felony DUI offenses, the sentencing usually takes place almost immediately. You will face the determination of the Judge about how much time you should be spending in jail, and reviews your criminal record.

There are higher penalties for those who have a prior conviction. If there were anyinjured victims in an accident, this can definitely affect the type of punishment that you could expect. Those who show no remorse, or if the judge doesn’t like your attitude, could be in serious trouble in the sentencing phase. Even a first time DUI can lead to up to 6 months in jail, and it is critical that you have legal representation from a Reno DUI attorney throughout the process, including the sentencing phase.

Misdemeanor and Felony DUI: A Different Process

When you are charged with a misdemeanor DUI, you are not going to get a jury trial. You will be appearing before a Justice of the Peace or a Municipal Court Judge. These legal professionals have literally “heard it all” – they sit on DUI cases daily. They vary in how they mete out punishments, and different days can bring different punishments. This is the human aspect of our justice system.

If you have been arrested and charged with DUI it is critical that you have legal representation to manage your case throughout the process. Never attend any appearance, hearing or sentencing without your attorney there to fight for any advantage possible.
