Assisting Individuals in Grand Blanc, Michigan with Fighting a Criminal DUI Charge

Two glasses of alcohol, a set of handcuffs and car keys representing how one can benefit from calling a Grand Blanc DUI lawyer.

In the State of Michigan, it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle while having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. Individuals who operate commercial vehicles for a living, such as commercial truck drivers, may not have a BAC of 0.04 percent or greater. Moreover, individuals who are under 21 years of age cannot operate a motor vehicle with a BAC that is higher than 0.02 percent. 

If you are pulled over by a police officer and your BAC is determined to exceed the legal limit, you can be arrested right on the spot. If you have been arrested and/or charged with DUI in Michigan, you may be facing serious criminal penalties, including fines, and in some instances, even jail time.

Being Arrested for DUI

Being arrested for a DUI can be a truly scary experience. An individual can be arrested for DUI in either of the following circumstances:

  • The driver’s BAC exceeds the legal limit for that particular individual (i.e., 0.08 percent for most drivers, 0.04 percent for commercial drivers, and 0.02 percent for individuals who are under 21 years of age)
  • The driver appears to be under the influence of alcohol, and the arresting officer makes an arrest based upon “observation evidence.” Evidence of alcohol intoxication is very fact-specific and may include erratic driving maneuvers, bloodshot eyes, and/or a driver’s performance on one or more field sobriety tests which the arresting officer administers to the driver at the scene. 

When it comes to proving DUI, the government has the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict you. Because this is a high burden of proof, many experienced DUI attorneys can successfully challenge the evidence and arguments of the prosecutor for a dismissal or an acquittal. 

Possible Penalties for DUI

If you are ultimately convicted of DUI, you will likely be facing serious criminal penalties. Possible penalties for a DUI conviction include the following:

  • Jail time
  • Monetary fines
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Driver’s license suspension or revocation

The penalties can also increase if you have prior DUI convictions on your record.
