How should I go about representing myself in DUI court?
This is my first DUI offense and it is also my first offense ever I am 24.
First – DON’T DO IT!
Second – You will be facing not only the trained law enforcement officer but also the Prosecutor that has been trained to prosecute DUI cases. Depending on what type of official state test was used, you may even face a technician from the GBI Crime Lab etc..
Third – Even though you are not an attorney you will be held to all the rules of Georgia evidence and the rules of the court.
Fourth & Finally – The chances of you being successful in defending a DUI are very low. I would highly recommend that you HIRE an experienced DUI defense attorney to represent you – ASAP!!! If there is absolutely no way that you can afford your own attorney, at the very least apply for a Public Defender!!!!
I hope this information is helpful to you and that you decide to hire the Best DUI Defense Attorney that is available to you!!! Good Luck!!!
