I'm Guilty - Shouldn't I Just Admit Guilt?

Many people charged with DUI do not take the charges seriously. They feel that pleading guilty will be the easiest way to get the process over with. Most attorneys will advise that this is not always a good idea.

Making a decision in an effort to "just get it over with" is almost never a good idea. When a person pleads guilty, they are essentially admitting guilt and leaving the judge open to grant them with the maximum sentence. Pleading not guilty will allow a defendant to discover what evidence the prosecution has against them and how solid their charges are. In some cases, the evidence may be very weak and worth fighting. The best course of action, when facing any type of criminal charge, is to contact an experienced attorney to help you make the most informed decision possible.
