Q: It been 4-5 months now since I got arrested?
Got arrested for my 2nd DUI and haven't got an letter by mail from the court? Should I call or wait? I getting worried.
A: Sometimes there are delays if a blood draw was involved in the case, because it takes quite a bit of time to have the sample tested at the laboratory. You can hire a lawyer at anytime to represent you - you do not have to wait to be charged to hire a lawyer. A lawyer can give you great advice, look into the case for you, and help you to obtain a reasonable bond if you are ultimately charged.
