First, a criminal case is brought against you, charging you with a DUI. The penalties you face on the criminal side will in part depend on the facts of the case, criminal history, and whether you are a repeat DUI offender. In order for the prosecuting attorney to convict you of this crime, he or she must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were in fact intoxicated. The burden of proof is high and is the prosecuting attorney’s responsibility.
Second, a civil case is brought against you in which a license suspension is imposed as a result of driving under the influence of alcohol or refusing a blood-alcohol measurement test. Although these are separate cases, they are generally treated as one case with two different parts. On the civil side, the burden of proof standard is not equivalent to the criminal side standard. The DMV simply has to show that you were more likely than not, intoxicated at the time of your arrest. If the the DMV is successful at doing so, it will indefinitely suspend or revoke your license and you will have to follow a number of driving restrictions.
A DUI offense is a serious change and can have very serious consequences. Fortunately, there is a variety of ways to challenge a DUI arrest. It is highly recommended that you speak to an experienced DUI attorney regarding your DUI case. An experienced attorney has the capability of protecting your rights throughout the investigation and trial. He or she may conduct a separate and thorough investigation, pinpoint questionable law enforcement procedures, and ensure that there was probable cause for your arrest.
