Many Michigan residents find themselves subjected to criminal prosecution for allegedly drinking and driving near the holidays. Saturation patrols, DUI checkpoints and increased accidents can give police cause to test a driver for intoxication and, depending on the results, an arrest may be made. This can be scary for arrestees, and they may find themselves worrying about their future.
A drunk driving conviction can have a significant impact on your life, including jail time, fines, revocation of driving privileges and damage to your reputation. Therefore, if you are facing allegations of drunk driving, it is critical that you try to mount a criminal defense that will seek to protect your legal rights, your freedom and your well-being.
There are many defense options that may be available to those accused of drunk driving. A defendant may be able to learn about these options and decide on one that works best if they get the right information. Defendants may choose to challenge a breath test reading that shows a BAC that was over the legal limit, or they may choose to challenge the legality of the initial stop, among other possible defenses.
