Westwood DUI Lawyer
Defending Criminal and DUI Charges in Westwood, Kansas Since 1993
Have you been charged with a DUI or DWI in Westwood or Mission Woods? When
you have been released from custody you will receive your bond paperwork
and your citations with your first Court Date on the front. It's time
to catch your breath, get your vehicle out of the tow lot if necessary;
assess the situation and then talk to an
experienced Westwood DUI Lawyer.
I have been Served With A Pink Form (DC-27)_: How Do I Request a Kansas
Drivers License Hearing in Westwood?
Your initial court date may be four to six weeks from the date you were
cited, but if it is alleged that you Refused to Submit to Chemical Testing
or that you Failed a Breathalyzer (.08 result or greater)
you have only fourteen calendar days or ten business days (whichever is
greater) to request an Administrative Drivers License Hearing with the
Kansas Department of Revenue. The Westwood Police Officer should have given you a DC-27 form (Pink
Form); the date of service is the date on this form. A $50.00 processing
fee must be included with your request for a Kansas Drivers License Hearing.
Read the fine print: No $50.00 fee means your request for review will
be automatically denied and your Kansas Driving Privileges suspended or
revoked without a hearing.
When you retain the Law Offices of Charles R. Green one of the first steps
we take for you is to request the Drivers License Hearing on your behalf
with the Kansas Department of Revenue. This not only protects your right to review possible constitutional issues
involved in the DUI investigation and compliance with KDHE testing / Breathalyzer
protocol by the officer; it also allows you to continue to have full driving
privileges during the administrative process.
