What will happen if I am charged with OWI?

The court process starts with an arraignment. The arraignment is where the judge formally tells you what you have been charged with, what the maximum penalty is, and sets a bond.

The second hearing you will attend is called a pre trial. This is where your attorney will discuss your matter with the prosecutor and may obtain a plea deal for you. If there is a legal challenge to be made your attorney may set a motion date or evidentry hearing date. If a deal cannot be made or a legal challenge was not successful in a complete dismissal then the case will be set for trial.

If you take a plea then your next hearing will be a sentencing. At sentencing the judge has broad discretion to hand down a sentence within the rules of law.
