Pleading No Contest for DUI

You’ve been arrested for DUI in Orange County, and now you’re wondering if pleading no contest could help your charge. Or, what about pleading guilty? After all, it is your first DUI arrest.

If you’re even thinking about doing this alone, don’t. You need to hire an experienced DUI defense attorney. Wondering what to do proves that you don’t know what you’re doing, and you’re trying to make a decision about a criminal matter that will affect the rest of your life.

If you make the wrong decision, it could lead to a host of negative consequences, for instance, it could cause you to lose your job, to get kicked out of college, or make it nearly impossible to have a rewarding career. Meanwhile, you’ll be under the court’s thumb for about 3 years, if not longer.

If you don’t hire a lawyer to investigate the charges and look into the state’s case against you, it’s like you’re performing heart surgery on yourself without a medical degree.

Pleading ‘No Contest’ Will Lead to a Conviction

In criminal court, if you plead no contest, it will have the same result as a guilty plea; it would end up as a criminal conviction.

So know that if you decided to plead no contest, you’re certain to be convicted, and that would mean that you never found out if you had viable defenses or if there was a way to get your charges reduced.

If you were recently arrested, you have just 10 days from the date of the arrest to contact the DMV and request a hearing. Otherwise, they will automatically suspend your driver’s license.
