- Jaeger Law Office:
Criminal cases are brought by the government against people (or sometimes against corporations) in one of two ways: either a person is arrested or a person learns that he or she is under investigation. Once a person is arrested, he or she becomes a "defendant" in the criminal justice system. In order to navigate this maze of bureaucracy and avoid the pitfalls of an unmerciful system...
- Neiman Law Office:
A criminal case usually begins with an investigation by law enforcement authorities. The reports of the law enforcement agency are then forwarded to the local prosecutor (County Attorney) who reviews the reports and sometimes conducts a further investigation. If the local prosecutor files a charge, a complaint is filed with the county court alleging some violation of law. After the complaint has been filed, a person is required to appear in court for an arraignment or first appearance; which is a court preceding before a judge who explains to you what you have been charged with, the possible penalties, and your legal rights. Depending upon the type crime charged the specific procedures followed in a given case vary greatly from case to case after the first court appearance.
In a criminal case, you are entitled to the presumption of innocence, and that presumption continues until the prosecutor has proven your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt; or until you plead guilty or no contest.
One of the more complicated aspects of a criminal case is that the prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt by using evidence that was constitutionally and legally obtained and which is admissible in court. Courts will usually allow evidence to be presented unless a proper objection is made to the use of the evidence. Most laypersons do not have the legal expertise to understand whether the evidence was constitutionally and legally obtained and whether the evidence is legally admissible in a court proceeding.

- Johnson & Vaughn: In the State of Nebraska, the legal limit is .10. Any amount over .10 means that you can be arrested and charged with "driving under the influence". The amount that any one individual can consume before being over the limit is generally unknown until after you have been arrested and tested. There are a great number of factors, which can effect your alcohol absorption rate, and there is no safe answer for any individual as to an exact amount of alcohol you can consume and still safely drive a motor vehicle.
- Island Law Office: Driving while under the influence also known as operating while under the influence, operating while intoxicated, operating while under the influence or drunk driving can be proven in several ways. The most common is driving while under the influence of alcohol or over the legal limit. The government attempts to prove their case either from the observations of the officer regarding your vehicle operation, personal observations and sometimes Standard Field Sobriety Tests. Another way the government can prove their case is based upon a blood, breath or urine tests showing the subject has a reading of .08 or higher. Finally, the government may prove their case if the defendant is under the influence of drugs based on the observations made by the arresting officer.
Driving under the influence carryÕs serious consequences. A driver may lose his license, be sentenced to jail or probation. In addition to the criminal consequences, a person may lose their commercial driverÕs license for life. An attorney experienced in this area can evaluate your case and help determine if there are any defenses to the crime as well as protect the defendantÕs driverÕs license.

- Baxley Law Office: In Nebraska someone can be guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol in two ways. First, someone can be Òdriving under the influence,Ó which means they are driving after the ingestion of alcohol or drugs in an amount sufficient to impair to impair their ability to operate a motor vehicle in a prudent and cautious manner. Second, someone can have over a .08 "alcohol concentration." So, how do the police build a DUI case against you? They basically use three factors. First they see how you are driving. They can say that in their opinion you were not operating it in a "prudent and cautious manner." Second they "ask" you to take a series of coordination exercises or ÒtestsÓ. This is where they get evidence of impairment. Make no mistake; these tests are designed for failure. Finally, they ask for a breath or blood test. This is to show your alcohol concentration was .08 or over.

Nelson Law Offices: Whenever you get arrested or ticketed for a D.U.I., you face two very important issues. The first issue involves the Administrative License Revocation process conducted by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles. This process involves the suspension of your driving privileges in Nebraska. The most important thing you need to remember is that you only have a short time to contest this administrative license revocation. It is imperative you contact an attorney very soon after your arrest so you donÕt miss any deadlines. If you do, you will waive your right to challenge your revocation. If you do lose your license administratively, an attorney can assist you in obtaining a restricted license allowing you to drive under certain conditions. However, it is important to note that in some situations you will be unable to obtain a restricted license.
The second issue you face involves the criminal prosecution of your case in the jurisdiction where you received your D.U.I. A D.U.I. prosecution and conviction subjects you to the following possible penalties: jail, probation, community service, fines, court costs and further suspension of your license. In July of 2006, the Nebraska Legislature increased the penalties for most D.U.I. offenses. For example, jail time and a one-year license suspension are now mandatory for certain first-time D.U.I. offenses. It is also now possible to face a felony D.U.I. prosecution consisting of more lengthy incarceration and a possible 15 year license suspension after only 2 prior D.U.I. convictions. The Nebraska Legislature has targeted D.U.I. offenders as public enemy number one. The penalties have increased dramatically and the consequences can be life-altering. dui - ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE REVOCATION CASE If you are charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, you have two separate issues to deal with. The first is the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) process through the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This process relates only to your privilege to drive-it does not include penalties for jail, fines, court costs, probation, etc as described in the next section below. The ALR process applies only to DUI-Alcohol cases and does not apply to DUI-Drug cases. If you submit to a breath test and test over the legal limit of 0.08 or if you refuse to take the breath test, the police officer will confiscate your license and issue you a thirty day temporary license. Once the temporary license expires, your privilege to drive in Nebraska will be revoked for 90 days, unless you have a prior administrative license revocation or if you refuse to submit to the chemical test. If you have a prior administrative license revocation for a DUI or you refuse to submit to a chemical test, your license will be revoked for one year at the expiration of the 30-day temporary license. It is very important to note that you only have 10 days from the date of arrest to file a petition to challenge whatever license revocation you might be facing. It is preferable that the attorney file this petition for you if you are represented by counsel. It is also important to note that the laws may be different if you are a minor or operating a commercial motor vehicle. Just because you file the petition to challenge your administrative license revocation does not mean you will be successful and avoid a revocation. However, you will certainly lose your license if you or your attorney fail to file the petition within 10 days of the date of arrest. Your desire or need to keep your license to travel to work, school or wherever else is not a defense to your administrative license revocation. There are multiple defenses to an administrative license revocation that will likely only be known by an attorney who practices significantly in this area of the law. A qualified attorney can increase your chances of avoiding an administrative license revocation. If your license is revoked, you must be aware that being convicted of driving under revocation can lead to harsh penalties, include jail time, a probation violation, and an additional one-year revocation of your license. Therefore, it is beneficial to have an attorney that understands what steps one can take to obtain a restricted license to be able to drive during your revocation. Obtaining a restricted license can reduce your chance of being prosecuted for driving under revocation and the harsh penalties associated with a conviction. There are two types of restricted licenses: 1. work permit & 2. ignition interlock device. There are pros and cons to each. A restricted license is generally available for only part of the revocation and in some cases the entire period. In some situations, a person will be eligible for one type of restricted license but not the other. An attorney can help determine your eligibility for a restricted license, which option-if any-is best for you, and how to apply for a restricted license. Be aware the Nebraska legislature recently changed the law pertaining to restricted licenses so more people now have the ability to obtain a restricted license than before. A Special Note About Blood Draws: In some cases, police officers will request that a person suspected of DUI submit to a blood draw rather than a breath test. In these cases, the blood must be drawn by a qualified person in a manner that complies with certain rules and regulations. It will take a few days before the blood can be tested and your alleged alcohol concentration determined. As the results are not immediately known at the time of arrest or citation, the administrative license revocation does not begin as it would if you failed a breath test at a police station-your license will not be confiscated by the officer nor will you be given a temporary license. Instead, the officer will await the test results, complete a temporary license when he receives the results if they show you were over the legal limit and then forward your temporary license to the DMV. The DMV will in turn send you via certified mail a copy of your temporary license with your test results along with a letter advising you of the deadline by which you or your attorney must file your petition to challenge your administrative license revocation.
