Preliminary Hearing for Felony DUI Charge

Los Angeles Felony DUI Court Process

Before your California felony DUI trial begins, a preliminary hearing will be held. At this hearing, the Court will determine whether there is, in fact, enough evidence that you have committed a felony DUI and should therefore be tried in court for the crime. If it is determined that there is enough evidence to prove guilt, you will be "held to answer."

Once you are "held to answer," the prosecution will file a document called the "Information." At that time, you will be arraigned on the Information and will be able to enter a plea of guilty, not guilty or no contest and then proceed to trial.

If you have been charged with a felony DUI, you will need a skilled defense lawyer on your side who can protect your rights. With any felony charge, you are looking at a minimum sentence of 1 year in state prison if you are convicted. By working with an attorney, you can avoid this sentence and possibly see a "not guilty" verdict.
