Top 4 Oklahoma DUI Arrest Mistakes:

DUI Mistake # 4
Thinking the DUI charge
is a traffic ticket


DUI is a charge that will stay with you forever, if you are convicted. The DMV will record it on your driving record until you are dead. In addition to that, your insurance company will be notified of the conviction and your rates might increase. The fact of the matter is that the time to do something about keeping your record clean is now, if you plead guilty the case is over and the conviction for drunk driving stays with you forever.


DUI Mistake # 3
Assuming that a DUI case
cannot be won


There is little doubt that pleading guilty to driving under the influence (DUI) and relieving the government of its burden of proof is the single biggest (and most common) mistake people accused of DUI in Oklahoma make. Do not assume that your case cannot be won. Many lawyers advise client to plead guilty based on a breath test number and a review of the police report. Quite simply, this is bad legal advice and it shows an inadequate understanding of the deficiencies of testing for alcohol (and drugs) in Oklahoma.


DUI Mistake # 2
Failing to request a DPS Hearing

A DUI case is actually two cases in one; a criminal DUI case and a civil driver's license administrative action. Once a person receives a "notice of revocation", it is their responsibility to request an administrative hearing in writing. Because most officers fail to mention the hearing to defendants, a tremendous number of people miss this very important deadline. You have 15 days to request this hearing. Fail to do so and you can lose your license for between 6 months (first DUI offense) and 5 years (maximum driver's license suspension after third DUI).

DUI Mistake # 1
Not hiring an experienced DUI Defense Attorney immediately after you’ve been arrested or charged with Drunk Driving

If you wait to hire an attorney, you may jeopardize your chances of getting the right result. With the passage of time, memories fade, the scene of the incident changes, and exculpatory evidence disappears.
