What Is a Retention Hearing?
Daniel W. Russo
When the county seizes a vehicle as a result of a misdemeanor
DWI, the law requires that there be a retention hearing with 15 days of the
arrest. In this hearing, a judge determines whether the vehicle can be
retained by the county until the criminal case is resolved. If you have
been charged with a DWI, contact
