When dealing with a first offense DUI charge in West Virginia, it’s important to know how the state handles each case. Not all first time DUI offenses are the same, which means not all punishments are the same either.
West Virginia has a two-tier system on a DUI case, where the administrative court and the criminal court have separate dates, buildings, rules and procedures governing. The criminal court will be in a judicial building in the county of arrest. The administrative court will be at the regional DMV detachment closest to the county of arrest.
