Toronto lawyers dedicated to helping people charged with impaired driving

I have been charged with DUI. Should I just go to court on my own and plead guilty to get it over with?

No you should not plead guilty to anything without having a lawyer review your case and the potential options that are available to you. Impaired driving cases are not “open and shut” so to speak in that many people are able to get their charges dropped or be found not guilty at trial. People who work for the government in one form or another may try to convince you just to plead guilty but this is not necessarily in your best interest. Criminal court case results are generally for the most part permanent especially if a person pleads guilty.

Anyone who pleads guilty to a DUI will at a minimum receive a criminal record, a fine, driving prohibition, and possibly a jail sentence even for a first time offence.

The sentence a person receives after pleading guilty is solely the decision of the judge and not any of the other people paid for by the government that you may encounter if you do not have a lawyer and are representing yourself in court. People will often accept a deal when they could have had the charges dropped or won at trial had they retained a lawyer to represent them. They may also plead guilty expecting a non-jail sentence only to later have the judge sentence them to jail. Just because the Crown makes an offer on sentencing does not mean it will be accepted by the judge.
