Riverside DUI Defense - Criminal Court Process

If you are arrested for driving under the influence in Riverside County you will be issued a citation.  The citation will list the charges (usually violation of Vehicle Code Section 23152 (a) and (b)) and at the bottom will have a court date.  This court date is known as the arraignment.  This court date is mandatory in all cases, but if you hire a leading Riverside DUI Defense Attorney they can appear on your behalf at the arraignment date in a misdemeanor case.

Arraignment Phase of a Riverside DUI Case

At the arraignment phase of your Riverside Drunk Driving case, the charges against you will be read.  You will be able to obtain a copy of the police report at this initial court date.  The police report will contain all of the details gathered by the arresting agency the night of the arrest.  In many cases you may find discrepancies between what you remember happening and what the arresting officer has reported.  It is vital that you consult a dedicated Riverside DUI defense lawyer about these discrepancies.  These could lead to strong defenses in your case.  The arraignment phase will also allow your attorney to be put on record as counsel in the case.
