Question:

How long will my DUI case take?

Answer:

The normal DUI case doesn’t take a long time to resolve; probably six months. The problem is you’re on probation for a year. It goes on for a year after you enter a plea. The other issues is if you were really adamant that you weren’t driving while impaired, and you want a jury trial, that could take a year to a year and a half.DUI Trial ProcessNormally, with first offenses, we know what the recommendation is going to be. Since you’re offered a deferred sentence, it’s awfully hard to risk a jury trial when this will be off your record in a year. The amount of time your case lasts just depends on whether you want to fight it or not.
