Following an arrest for DUI, a defendant's defense attorney will attempt to negotiate for a reduction in charges or a case dismissal. This is usually based any procedural errors that may have occurred, including mistakes made in DUI testing. There may also be plea bargaining, which enables the defendant to plead guilty to the charges (or lesser charges) with reduced sentencing. If the case doesn't resolve at this point, the defense attorney will file motions to suppress evidence. This will result in a DUI motions hearing where the court can rule certain evidence inadmissible or dismiss the case altogether.
