If you have been charged with drunk driving, you are facing criminal prosecution as well as administrative proceedings that may affect your ability to drive. Within 10 days of your DUI arrest, you must schedule a hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). In this hearing, the fate of your license will be determined: you may be facing license suspension.
Your license will be suspended 30 days after your arrest if you do not ask for a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles within 10 days of your arrest.
A DMV hearing is separate from your criminal prosecution. However, the two can overlap and affect each other. A good result in one doesn't necessarily yield a good result in the other — but the opposite might be true. If you lose your DUI trial, you will get a negative result in your DMV hearing.
It is important for any person charged with drunk driving to choose a criminal defense attorney carefully. The attorney must understand how these criminal and civil proceedings affect each other. It is important to work with a DUI defense attorney who understands the interplay between a criminal prosecution and the DMV hearing. I am attorney Keith H. Rutman, and I provide clear, honest, and practical advice to clients who have been charged with drunk driving. Contact me to schedule a free half-hour consultation where we can discuss your options.
