The criminal justice system is complicated for the uninitiated, especially when it comes to trial. You can easily make a mistake that can lose your case if you don't know what you are doing. That is why you need to be prepared by a criminal defense lawyer before facing the prosecutor in court. Here are some of the ways in which your lawyer will prepare you for trial:
Holding Mock Trials or Interviews with you
A common punishment that judges levy against defendants in DUI cases is to make them pay fines. The amount of money you'll be ordered to pay will depend on the severity of your crime. Unfortunately, most people in America are living paycheck to paycheck and can't afford to pay the money. If you're in this position, here are your options for resolving the issue.
Request a Hardship Waiver
One thing you can do is file a request to have the fines waived.
