5. Trial

a. Trial may be held before a jury of six persons before the judge only. In DUI cases, it is best to be tried by a jury of your peers. Judges tend to be more prosecutorial in their approach.

b. To be convicted, the jury must be unanimous. To be found not guilty, the jury must be unanimous. If no unanimous decision can be reached, the result is a “hung jury” and a mistrial is filed. In such a case, the prosecution has 30 days to re-file the case and start over or resolve the case with a mutually agreed on plea recommendation or dismissal.

c. DUI jury trials generally take 1 ˝ -2 days to complete.

d. If you are found guilty, the next step is sentencing.
