What to Expect at a Misdemeanor DUI Arraignment

CourtroomAfter an arrest for misdemeanor DUI, the arraignment is the first hearing that you will need appear in court. The main purpose of a DUI arraignment is to inform you of the charges and allow you to enter a plea.

You don’t know what can happen at this hearing and issues may come up that require the skill and knowledge of the law and the courts only an experienced criminal defense attorney can provide.

Some issues that may arise are:

  • Should a plea of not guilty be entered or should the arraignment be continued?
  • At what amount should bail be set?
  • Should the court allow you to drive a motor vehicle while out on bail?
  • Should a continuance beyond your speedy trial right be requested, and if so for how long?
