DUI Procedures: Criminal Court and License Suspension
When you are arrested for any DUI charge in the state, two separate legal actions will be started against you. The first is an administrative procedure regarding the suspension of your driving privileges. This is done by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), who has the authority to suspend your license for specified amounts of time. The second part of the legal process is the criminal court case against you. Both can be difficult to successfully navigate, especially when you are not familiar with the laws and procedures that apply.
