It is important to understand that DUI charges carry administrative as well as criminal penalties. After a Kensington DUI arrest, you have only 10 days to petition for an administrative hearing in order to dispute your automatic license suspension. The 10-day policy is very strict. If you fail to request a hearing within those 10 days, you will have forfeited your right to a hearing.
The criminal component of your charges will begin shortly thereafter. In Contra Costa County, DUI offenses are heard by two different courts located within the county. Misdemeanor DUI cases will be heard in the Superior Court of Martinez or Richmond. If you are arrested in Kensington, your case will be heard at:
