Trials in Rockdale County

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

If you are wrongly accused with DUI in Rockdale County, you should contest the charges with a trial.  In many instances, there are two types of trials available to you: either a bench trial before a judge or a jury trial before a jury of Rockdale County citizens. 

Even thought it doesn't always feel that way, a person is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.  The Rockdale County prosecuting attorney has to prove the DUI charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt.  Many people enter a guilty plea, but if you are not guilty, you should not enter a guilty plea to DUI.  An experienced DUI attorney can help you fight the charges at trial.  Typically, a jury trial is the best way to show that you are not guilty of DUI.  The jurors get to hear the evidence for themselves and apply some common sense.  In certain cases though, a bench trial will be the best way to resolve the case.  They are quicker to get to trial on, and if there is a strong legal argument in your favor, the judge can rule on that and you can get your case over and done with. 

If you want to fight the charges against you, call Rockdale County DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today for a free consultation.  Mr. Lawson can help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
