If you are arrested for DUI in Auburn or one of its many surrounding cities, there are always two key aspects to the case. The first is the DUI criminal case which can be filed in the Auburn District Court. There you will be charged with a DUI which is a gross-misdemeanor, which comes with a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000.
Additionally, it comes with a license suspension and mandatory jail – the length of both depends on the facts of the case and your criminal history. The second key aspect of your case is that you can also face a Department of Licensing hearing regarding your license. When you are arrested for DUI, your license is then attentively scheduled to be suspended starting 60 days from the date of arrest.
In order to fight that suspension, you must request a DOL hearing within 20 days from the date of arrest. This suspension is separate from the criminal case. The only way to walk away from this entire unfortunate situation without ever losing your license requires you to win your DOL hearing and also either get the DUI criminal case dismissed or reduced a great deal.
