Beginning the DUI Court Process

After you are arrested, you will be given a future court date, when you have to appear in court for your DUI charges. For other offenses, you can also be arrested, given a citation and told to return to court at a future date. Misdemeanor and felony offenses require a court appearance, and prescheduled appearances will be on the calendar. Advances and continuances, however, may not be included on the calendar.

Court Rules to Know

On the date of your court appearance, be sure to go directly to the courtroom where you have been assigned to go. The majority of courtrooms open at 8:30am.

Courtrooms also observe a number of general rules, all of which you should be sure to follow:

  • Tank tops / t-shirts are not allowed in the courtroom
  • A shirt and shoes are required in the courtroom
  • Food, drinks and gum are not allowed in court
  • Weapons are not allowed in the courthouse
  • Your pager and/or cell phone must be turned off

For a misdemeanor offense, your attorney may represent you and you may not need to be present (this excludes domestic violence cases, however). For all felony offenses, you must be present personally.
