What is the legal limit in Michigan?
If your blood alcohol concentration is .08% or above, then you will considered to be driving under the influence, as per Michigan. You will most likely be charged with DUI and face penalties such as jail time, fines, counseling and more.
If I am under 21, is the law different for me?
Michigan is one of many states which follow a “zero tolerance” law, which states that your blood alcohol concentration must not be .01% or above – meaning you cannot consume any alcohol and drive.
Am I going to go to jail for my DUI?
That will depend upon your specific case and circumstances, whether you have any prior DUIs on your record, and more. The likelihood of avoiding jail time is greatly increased if you hire an experienced DUI attorney.
What is “implied consent”?
This is a law which states that by driving, you have given your consent to be tested for alcohol or drugs if you are believed to be impaired by one or the other, or both. This is why you may face harsh penalties for refusing a blood, breath or urine test.
What if I wasn’t actually driving the car?
If you were not driving the car, you should not be charged with DUI. It is important, at this point, to contact a DUI attorney who can inform you of your rights and go about finding evidence or witnesses who can testify that you were not driving the car.
What if I am arrested for DUI after an accident that hurt someone?
If you are arrested for DUI that has caused injury, you will face more severe charges than if you caused no damage or harm. A DUI lawyer is needed to represent you in court and make sure you do not receive the maximum penalties.
Did the police officer have probable cause to stop your car? Was the Breathalyzer or Intoxilyzer unit properly calibrated and in proper working order? Was the officer trained in administering the breath test and any field sobriety tests?
We will review the prosecutor’s evidence and other documentation that may show if corners were cut or mistakes were made. This approach can raise doubts about the reliability of the state's evidence.
In order to detain you, police officers must have a reason to suspect you of driving under the influence. Suspicious behaviors range from speeding, to failure to maintain lanes (weaving), to failing to signal lane changes and erratic driving. An officer is not required to have an articulable suspicion to stop you for DUI at a sobriety checkpoint (provided the roadblock followed prescribed legal procedures).
