Once you have been cited by a peace officer for a DUI or a drunk driving related offense, the peace officer forwards the information to either the Office of the Los Angeles City Attorney or the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney. The charging deputy reviews the police report and files the complaint in Court. Most DUIs are filed as misdemeanor offenses, which means many times your DUI lawyer can appear in Court for you without you ever having to be present. The first court appearance is the arraignment where the charges are read and a plea of “guilty” or “not guilty” is entered. Once your DUI defense attorney enters a plea of “not guilty” on your behalf, your case is set for a pre-trial. The pre-trial allows your defense lawyer to negotiate with the prosecutor on your matter. Your defense lawyer can request additional discovery and evaluate your case to determine if motions should be filed. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, a plea bargain could be your best option. Other times your DUI lawyer will recommend you take your case to trial.

During a typical DUI arrest, the peace officer will take your California driver’s license and provide you with a pink sheet of paper. That paper serves as your temporary driver’s license for the next 30 days. Should you take no further action, your license will become suspended after 30 days. You have a right to a hearing to fight to save your driver’s license. A competent DWI attorney will contact the Los Angeles County Driver Safety Office and request an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing, a stay on your license, and discovery. Once your APS hearing has been requested, the Driver Safety Office will forward you a new temporary license. You will have full driving privileges until a decision has been rendered on your hearing. At the APS hearing a Hearing Officer who represents the DMV, has the burden of proving the following issues:
If the driver submitted to a chemical test there are three issues:
If the driver refused to submit to or failed to complete a chemical test (a refusal) there are four issues:
The Hearing Officer will enter the arresting officer’s reports into evidence. A skilled Los Angeles DUI attorney will object to the documents, present rebuttal evidence and potentially call witnesses to overcome the documents. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Hearing Officer will take all of the evidence under submission and will prepare a written decision either upholding the suspension or setting it aside.
