What you can expect during your DUI case.

On your first court date, your case will be listed on the court calendar, right past security. Your first court date is called an "arraignment." This date is a procedural court date where the complaint is received listing your charges and the police report. The chemical test results are also received. The case is then continued to another court date. In between the first court date and the second court date, the investigation into your case starts. This is a very important part of your case and why an attorney is essential to the proper defense of your case.
