The 5 Point DUI Checklist

  1. Obtain a copy of the police reports, video, audiotapes and photographs in possession of the prosecutor or police. You may have to file a motion and have the court order them to turn over this evidence.
  2. File any potentially beneficial pretrial motions such as a motion to suppress or motion to produce.
  3. Evaluate your chances for success at trial and decide on pursuing a plea agreement or proceeding to trial.
  4. If you pursue and secure a plea agreement, enter a plea to a sympathetic judge, if possible.
  5. Prepare for the worst outcome always. Be prepared in case you lose at trial or you cannot choose your judge. Obtain an alcohol evaluation and follow its recommendations. Go to some A.A. meetings and have cards signed.
