Remember, you are facing serious consequences with respect to your privilege to drive after a DUI arrest in Maryland. However, you may challenge or request a modification of the MVA’s sanctions by requesting a MVA hearing.
A MVA hearing must be requested in a timely fashion and you should discuss with your attorney whether or not you should request a MVA hearing.
At your court date, you attorney will speak with the Assistant State’s Attorney to workout a plea agreement. If you reject the plea agreement, then your DUI case will go to trial.
At trial, State’s Attorney’s Office must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you operated your motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Depending on the charges, you have a right to a trial by judge or jury.
If you plead guilty or are found guilty after trial, then the court will impose its sentence.
The penalties may consist of fines, fees, jail and probation.
