Q. Going to court today with my 16year old daughter for her first dui charge, does she pled guilty or not guilty?
A: First things first, get a defense attorney for her. A first appearance in Oregon for a case like this is usually the arraignment. At the arraignment, an Oregon attorney would usually reserve their clients' rights by making specific statements to the judge on the record and ask for future dates of appearance in the case. In many cases, defendant's will enter a not guilty plea and can change their plea at a later point in time if they decide to. In some cases, defendants will get an early resolution offer for entering a guilty plea and they might accept that. In other instances, no plea is entered, new dates are requested and rights are reserved. It is often that attorneys and defendants will want to order and review the discovery in a case before they would decide whether to enter a guilty plea. Alas, to answer your question square on the nose enters the area of legal advice, and that's not something our firm can hand out online to folks that are not clients. Seek immediate assistance by hiring a highly rated criminal defense attorney. NOTE: This is not legal advice and laws and procedures vary from state to state. Contact a lawyer in the state and county in which the charge was filed to obtain legal advice.
