What to Do If You Are Arrested for a DUI

When arrested for a DUI, we encourage full cooperation with the arresting officers. You will likely be subjected to a BAC test, either in the field in the form of a Breathalyzer or in the station through a blood test. Be polite and courteous, but we strongly recommend that you exercise your right to remain silent, speaking only to ask for an attorney. Remember, too, that you are likely being videotaped through the officer's vehicle or uniform, which can work in your favor when it comes to court. In previous years, your trial would have depended on the testimony of the arresting officer and yourself; now, human memory can be compared to the evidence on these surveillance cameras.

Filing for a Hearing

You face the automatic suspension of your license if you don't file right away for a hearing. The state only provides a certain amount of days in which to file for this hearing, which is why we encourage quick contact with an experienced Salt Lake City DUI lawyer to make sure you've filed correctly and before the deadline.

During your hearing:

  • Your charges will be read
  • The arresting officer will give testimony
  • Your attorney can cross-examine the arresting officer
  • A Hearing Officer will come to a formal decision about your suspension

Having an attorney present to help facilitate your defense can make all the difference when it comes to the protection of your driving freedom. Ask our Salt Lake City DUI lawyer for help with your case. Call (385) 777-1066.
