Lawyers from opposing camps will have the final chance to convince the jury during the closing arguments. Typically, the prosecution will prove guilt while the defense will argue innocence. Then, the judge will give instructions to the jury.It’s now time for deliberation and conclusion. Some cases will take a few minutes while some take a few days. Upon reaching the verdict, the courtroom clerk will read it aloud.With this process, it would be unwise to hire a lawyer who doesn’t specialize in DUI law. And don’t even try to defend yourself. A DUI charge is a serious matter and should be given to the hands of the expert.
