The process of court proceedings for a Wisconsin DUI charge begins with a “not guilty” plea, gathering relevant information to assist your case, and ultimately making the decision of accepting a plea offer from the State or continuing with an aggressive defense at trial.  Many attorneys suggest accepting the plea offer because they are not fully prepared for trial processes.  Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney Nathan Dineen has experience with trial process, cross-examining witnesses, and obtaining expert testimony.

Wisconsin OWI Trial Process

A trial is a hearing held before a Judge and/or a jury.  In cases with a jury, the selection of a jury is important.  The facts of the Wisconsin DUI case are argued between the prosecuting attorney and Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney Nathan J. Dineen.  Testimony is heard from witnesses (i.e. the arresting police officers, experts, yourself if necessary, etc.).  A not guilty verdict means the Wisconsin drunk driving charge is removed from your record.  If you were to agree with the plea offer, the Wisconsin DUI remains on your record for life.

Wisconsin DUI Jury Selection

The process of jury selection is known as Voir Dire.  Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney Nathan J. Dineen, the prosecuting attorney, and the Judge ask questions of the potential jurors in order to select the members.  The answers the potential jurors give are not right or wrong, but merely indicators of their potential decisions.  Both attorneys select the jury.  When the final members of the jury are selected, they are sworn in and given a set of instructions.  The jury will listen to each side, the witnesses and experts before coming to an agreed verdict.

Testimony at Wisconsin DUI Trials

Wisconsin DUI Attorney Dineen and the prosecuting attorney call witnesses to testify.  The witnesses usually include the arresting officer(s), yourself (if discussed with Attorney Dineen), and any experts (if needed).  Each attorney asks the witness or expert questions highlighting the events of the WI DUI Arrest.  The questions asked by Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney Nathan J. Dineen should produce answers benefitting his client
