The City of Hemet has a rich history beginning with the Cahuilla Indian tribe. Part of the San Jacinto Valley, Hemet’s “retirement community” reputation is quickly being replaced by young families. Hemet’s recent growth has seen an influx of shopping opportunities, bars and restaurants. The Hemet Police Department provides law enforcement services for the city. The police department is located at 450 E. Latham Avenue, Hemet, CA 92543 and can be reached at (951) 765-2400.
HEMET DRUNK DRIVING DEFENSE ATTORNEY
The first thing you need to do if you are arrested for driving under the influence in Hemet is call a leading Riverside DUI lawyer who can help fight the charges you are facing. There are two separate actions in all drunk driving cases. The first is an administrative per se hearing through the California Department of Motor Vehicles. This is a hearing to determine whether your driving privileges should be suspended based solely off of your arrest. You have the right to an attorney at this hearing and can present evidence, as well as witnesses for your case.
The second part of a Hemet DUI is the criminal court case. If your case is filed as a misdemeanor, you can usually have a qualified attorney appear on your behalf. If your case is filed as a felony, you will have to be present at all court appearances. Regardless of the circumstances of your Hemet drunk driving offense, failure to appear at your first court date (or failure to have an attorney appear on your behalf) will result in a warrant being issued for your arrest.
You cannot afford to “go it alone.” Call our offices today for a free initial case consultation. Our attorneys are local to Riverside County.
