What Are DUI Hearings? - Zirkin and Schmerling Law

What Are DUI Hearings?

There are several types of DUI hearings. Your initial bail hearing usually occurs within 24 hours of your arrest and establishes pretrial conditions. The next hearing is a bail review hearing to determine whether you will be released pending trial. Later, you’ll have a Motor Vehicle Administration hearing to decide how your case may impact your driver’s license and standing with the MVA. 

Finally, a trial date will be set in district/circuit court and you’ll eventually learn the outcome of your case including penalties. At every hearing, you’re entitled to have an attorney present, so ensure you have a qualified Maryland DUI attorney there to help protect your rights.
