    I don't know what you mean by what to expect. You will be arraigned, a pre-trial date will be set to come back with your attorney to demand evidence, than a "Compliance & Election" date will be set for the DA to "comply" with the demand for discovery and for you to "elect" whether or not you are going to trial or submit a proposed plea. If it is a trial, then a trial date will be set and on that date you will have your trial. I hope that is what you were looking for. If you are looking for outcome and sentencing etc., then much more information would be necessary. DO NOT put details of what you did online. Anything that you put online can be used against you. If you want more or different information, you should hire a lawyer. You definitely should have a lawyer anytime that you appear in a criminal court.

    If you have injured a person while driving under the influence the prosecutor may choose to file felony DUI charges. The difference between a felony DUI and a misdemeanor DUI is prison exposure, depending upon the severity of the injuries. You should hire a DUI attorney, they may be able to help you beat the felony charges possibly more depending upon the facts of your case.

    In MN that type of offense would either be a gross misdemeanor or felony offense depending on the seriousness of the injury. Get an attorney asap.
