Pretrial Hearing DUI in Washington State

What Is a Pretrial Hearing?

Once you have been arrested and arraigned for DUI in Washington, the next step is the DUI pretrial hearing. It is usually scheduled 1 to 2 months after your arraignment and bail hearing.

What Happens at a Pretrial Hearing?

At the DUI pretrial hearing both sides can discuss the status of the case and tell the judge how they plan to proceed and any pretrial motions they plan to make. It is also an opportunity for your DUI defense attorney to discuss your case with the prosecutor and offer a plea bargain or present other arguments to have the charges reduced or even dismissed.

To find out more about successfully fighting your DUI charges, speak with a Lynnwood DUI Lawyer at DUI Heroes.

We understand how difficult facing a DUI conviction can be, especially if it is a person's first experience with the criminal justice system. It can be overwhelming and embarrassing just to be arrested, but it can be much more traumatic if you are convicted. Being found guilty of DUI in Washington carries a minimum mandatory jail sentence and driver's license suspension, and becomes part of a criminal record that can be used against you for years. Our firm has a very high success rate of getting DUI charges either reduced to a lesser charge or dropped altogether. We are ready to help you starting the moment you call our offices.

What Happens After a Pretrial Hearing?

There are three outcomes possible as a result of the DUI pretrial hearing.

These include:

  • Both sides discuss the facts of the case and reach an acceptable resolution through negotiation or plea bargains.
  • Either side can request a continuance for additional time to prepare their case.
  • If no plea bargain or other resolution can be reach, a motion hearing and trial date is set.

As an experienced DUI defense lawyer team, we have successfully fought for many of our clients to have their charges reduced or dismissed in DUI pretrial hearings. Call our offices for immediate help with your case in Lynnwood, Lynnwood, Snohomish County, and throughout Washington State.

Contact a Lynnwood DUI attorney if you've been arrested for DUI to fight for a reduction or dismissal of your charges.
