Reno DUI Trials: DUI Defense Attorney in Reno

Types of DUI trials

After being arrested and booked on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you will be formally arraigned and go through a preliminary hearing in order to have the judge determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial. If you are accused of a felony DUI and the judge determines that the matter should go to trial, and a plea bargain isn’t given by the prosecution, you will face either a jury trial or a bench trial. Misdemeanor DUI charges are not addressed with a jury trial.

Jury trials consist of the case being presented before a judge and jury, with the jury ultimately deciding if you’re guilty or innocent.In a bench trial, the judge acts as both judge and jury, and will be solely responsible for determining your guilt or innocence. Whether you face a bench trial or a jury trial, you should have a qualified Reno DUI attorney that has proven experience in court. If you’re found guilty, you have the right to appeal the sentence to a higher court.

During a DUI trial, the prosecution will attempt to prove that the arresting officer observed you driving recklessly and upon pulling you over, properly administered a series of tests that legally determined you were driving under the influence. They may present the results of a breathalyzer test, or a blood or urine sample, which found your blood alcohol content was greater than the .08 legal limit.
