We work with the Solicitor’s Office in the City of Milton on a regular basis. The Milton Municipal Court is a “court of limited jurisdiction” which means they aren’t allowed to have jury trials. Your case can be decided in Milton Municipal Court by a Judge, which is called a “bench trial,” but the facts in your case may make a jury trial the best vehicle for justice.
Only by contacting DUI Attorney Dan Mitnick or the experienced DUI team at Mitnick and Associates, can we determine what the best course of action is based on your unique set of circumstances. Every case is different and we need to look at your specific issues. Also, you need to act quickly because of the 10 day administrative hearing timeline.
When you were arrested you had the option of taking a breathalyzer test or refusing one. If you refused (or if you blew over the legal limit), then your driver’s license was taken and you were given a DS 1205 form to serve as your temporary driver’s license.
It includes information about you, details of your arrest, the officer’s name, where the arrest occurred, and test results. It also includes a section that reads “OFFICIAL NOTICE OF INTENT TO SUSPEND” which is where you are informed that if you don’t request an administrative hearing within ten (10) business days, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.
If we decide that a jury trial is the best avenue to avoid a DUI or DWI conviction, then your case will be transferred to Fulton State Court.
