DUI Defense Attorneys Strike Back at New Law

Yesterday, a group of DUI defense attorneys filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the recently passed amendments to Oklahoma DUI/APC laws. One key portion of the new law stripped drivers of their right to request an administrative hearing to save their driving privileges after being accused, not convicted, of driving under the influence or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle under the influence. Last week, Governor Fallin signed an executive order preventing that portion of the bill from taking effect.

If you're accused of DUI or APC, it is essential you consult an attorney within 15 days from the day your arrested. That 15 days is the deadline to request an administrative hearing with the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and prevent the automatic revocation of your drivers license.
