The Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing Process
The ALR hearing is separate from the criminal case and, as such, you could lose your license even if you are never convicted of drunk driving. That said, the ALR hearing can help prepare you for the criminal case because much of the discovery and questioning of witnesses is the same.
During the process, attorney Long will gather police reports, breath test results and other relevant documents to review. He may question the arresting officer and challenge the weaknesses in their testimony.
The prosecuting attorney must prove definitively that the traffic stop was justified and you were driving with a .08 blood alcohol content. It is attorney Long’s job to challenge this and show that you are not a danger on the road. And with 40 years of legal experience, he is good at it.
What To Know About Occupational Licenses
In cases where the administrative license judge does not reinstate your license, they may grant an occupational license. An occupational license gives you limited driving privileges to and from work, school, day care and other specific places. It can allow you to live your life as normal while your criminal case is pending.
