What Happens After You Are Arrested for a DWI in Cambridge, MN?
Were you recently arrested for a DWI in Cambridge, Minnesota? You need to know what happens once you have been convicted of a DWI.
Appear at the Implied Consent Hearing
To be able to keep your driving privileges in Cambridge, Minnesota, you need to request an implied consent hearing within 30 days after your driver’s license is revoked by the arresting officer or if you receive a revocation letter from the Department of Public Safety. Keep in mind that if you lose the hearing, the DWI revocation stays on your driving record. To develop a strong defense, you should request the arresting officer to be at the hearing.
The arraignment is held 30 to 60 days after you were arrested for a DWI. Often times if you have legal representation, you are not required to appear at the arraignment. The arraignment advises you of your rights.
The Pre-Trial Conference
Once you hire one of our experienced DWI attorneys at our Minnesota law firm, we’ll work with the prosecutor to negotiate a plea offer. The pre-trial conference occurs six weeks after your arraignment.
The Suppression Hearing
If your rights were violated, the court can suppress a portion or all of the evidence that is against you. Your attorney can file a motion to suppress evidence. This takes between six weeks to three months after your pre-trial conference.
Attend the Trial
If you were charged of a misdemeanor DWI, you are entitled to a trial with six jurors. In a felony DWI case, there will be twelve jurors.
If convicted or plead guilty, you will be sentenced after being convicted of DWI or if you accept a plea offer. Your sentence can include community service, jail time, alcohol treatment, fines, or house arrest.
