Following the DUI arrest of pop singer Justin Bieber, NBC 6 News recently turned to Miami DUI Attorney Helmuth Solis for some legal insight into how the DUI court process works. In the NBC 6 News interview, Attorney Solis explained the various steps that usually follow a DUI arrest.
In laying out the various steps, Attorney Solis noted that it begins with the driver being taken to jail and booked. If the person is able to secure bond, then he or she can be released from jail. The next thing that the defendant will have to do is show up for the arraignment, which is the first court hearing. This hearing, usually held about 21 days following the DUI arrest, is where the defendant would be able to officially contest the DUI charges filed against him or her, the lawyer said. As for Bieber's case, he is expected to be in court next month. According to NBC 6 News, it does not appear that the DUI charges will damage the immigration status of the singer, who is from Canada.
As we already reported on our blog, Justin Bieber was arrested on Jan. 23, 2014 after being stopped by law enforcement for an alleged drag racing incident. He ended up being arrested and charged with DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. It is alleged that he made statements indicating that he drank alcohol, took prescription drugs and smoked marijuana prior to his arrest.
