DUI Preliminary Hearing

DUI Preliminary Hearings

If you have been charged with a DUI, your arraignment will likely be followed by a preliminary hearing, which is similar to an actual trial. A Michigan OWI lawyer will be able to explain exactly what will go on, along with the possible outcomes. Sometimes attorneys can suppress evidence against you, and you may not have to stand trial if the judge decides that there is not enough evidence present in your case.

The burden is on the prosecution to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that you drove with a BAC above the legal limit. You want a skilled lawyer on your side during your preliminary trial because both the prosecution and defense will have the opportunity to make arguments regarding your case. Witnesses may be called and cross-examined, and you want an aggressive attorney to fight for your interests during this process.

Hiring a Dearborn/Wayne County DUI Attorney

The prosecution may have been able to obtain breath or blood tests that you submitted to after being pulled over by a law enforcement officer. These tests, while mostly accurate, are not immune to error and your attorney may choose to question the accuracy of your results. The prosecution must convince a judge that they have enough evidence to convince a jury of your guilt in the event that you do go to trial. If they cannot, then the judge may dismiss your case altogether. It is in your best interest to hire an experienced attorney to defend you during your preliminary hearing, so speak to our firm as soon as possible. Call our firm today!
