Bench Trial or Jury Trial

If you have been charged with a DUI or OUI, it is important to have a clear understanding of whether it makes sense to have a jury trial or a bench trial. A jury trial is when six people from the community will decide if you are guilty or not guilty, while a bench trial is when a single judge will make that decision.

The common thought process is that if the “theme of the case” is a question of fact – such as “do the field sobriety tests indicate impairment?” – then you should have a jury trial. However, if the “theme” is a question of law – such as “does the road qualify as a public way?” – then you should have a bench trial.

However, a lot more goes into the decision process. One of the most important factors to consider is who the judge will be. Some judges are good for bench trials, others are not. Because of this, you need an experienced Taunton DUI attorney by your side to make sure that you know all the important pieces of the puzzle.
