What is special about a DUI?
A DUI Charge in Texas is a Class C misdemeanor. A Class C misdemeanor means it is handled in either a Justice of the Peace or Municipal Court. A person cannot serve jail time for a DUI Arrest! All Class C misdemeanors, including DUI, if handled correctly, can be expunged. Being eligible for expunction is huge, as it can mean a complete legal erasure and sealing of the charge. That's right, the Law Office of RC Pate might be able to get your DUI charge completely off your record.
DUI arrests are handled in either a Municipal Court or a Justice of the Peace court.
