What happens at the first court appearance after a DUI?
After being arrested for a DUI charge, your first court appearance is called an arraignment. At this time, you and your attorney will appear and make your plea in whichever Nevada County court your arrest happened in. You will also gather police reports during the first court appearance and set the next court date (for approx 4-6 weeks out). At this point, your attorney should be gathering information from any sobriety tests performed or any other evidence you have to prove a not-guilty plea.
