Going To Court For A Minerva Park DUI / OVI Case

To learn what to expect in court, you may want to read the DUI/OVI Court Process page of this site. One thing you should decide is what plea you will enter at the first court appearance.

You’ll need to make that decision soon, as the arraignment is held within a few days of receiving the ticket.

To make that decision, you’ll need to determine your goals for the case. Do you want to resolve the case as quickly as possible, or do you want a chance to try to avoid a DUI/OVI conviction? You can resolve the case at the arraignment with a plea of guilty or no contest, and the case will be finished quickly.
