Dallas ALR Hearings
Ask a Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney for Help at Your Hearing
Charges of a
DWI are no laughing matter, and they are certainly nothing to be put off in
hopes that it will simply go away with time. If you are pulled over on
suspicion of drunk driving, you will be asked to run through several field
sobriety tests, along with blood & breath tests to check your blood
alcohol concentration. If you fail these tests and the officer believes
that there is probable reason to believe that you have been operating
while under the influence, you will be arrested and charged with a DWI.
Your troubles, however, have only just begun. Therefore, it is imperative
that you retain the services of a Dallas criminal defense lawyer as quickly
About Administrative License Revocation
ALR process, an officer may accuse you of drunk driving and after your license has
been confiscated, you will need to take steps to gain back your ability
to drive. From the moment that your license is revoked and you are issued
a temporary driving permit, you will have 15 days to request an ALR hearing.
If you do not request a hearing then a license suspension will be issues on the 40th day after the date the original notice was served on.
This hearing can be held either in person or per teleconference, and will
be administered by an Administrative Law Judge. If the judge finds that
there was reasonable cause to believe that you were indeed guilty of the
charges held against you, you will have your driver's license suspended.
There are many ways that a drunk driving conviction can be damaging and
the loss of driving privileges through a suspension or revocation are
just another one of those ways.
