Okay, so you (or someone you care a lot about) just got busted for drunk driving. Getting a DUI in Michigan sucks. Because you’re now at the start of a long and unpleasant journey, and there’s no getting off this roller coaster till the ride is over. But, you’ll be happy to know that there are ways to make the ride less scary, and sometimes shorter. How, you wonder? That’s what we’re here to explain. Buckle up…
Being arrested for drunk driving is scary, especially if it’s your first time!
We get it. It’s terrifying! You got pulled over on the side of the road, you were breath tested, and maybe made to touch your nose and walk a straight line like a performing monkey (and doing anything while someone is staring at you and waiting for you to screw up is paralyzing!) Then they slapped cuffs on you and dragged you down to the station where you were again breath tested, stripped and searched and fingerprinted, and then thrown into a cell with a bunch of strangers. Super scary!
But you’re not alone here. We got you.
Being arrested for anything at all is a crappy experience. Part of what makes it so bad is how alone you feel. But we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to do this alone. One phone call and you could have one of the best DUI defense attorneys in the state of Michigan on your side. Fighting for you. Protecting your rights. Making sure you get through this and end up with the best outcome. Sound good? That’s because we’re excellent at what we do. We’ve helped thousands of client over the past decades.
Will they go easy on you if it was your first time?
Maybe, maybe not. That depends on a lot of things – who your judge is, what county you got arrested in, how fast you were going at the time, how drunk you were, whether or not you have any priors on your record, stuff like that. So there’s really no one-size-fits-all answer for that question, but here’s one fact you need to know. Michigan takes drunk driving seriously. So even if it was your first time, expect a fight. Because you’re going to get one!
Will I have to go to jail if it was my first DUI arrest?
Again, there’s no stock answer for this. Some people get probation and community service the first time they’re arrested for drunk driving, some people end up behind bars for a minute. It all depends. Factors like how much booze you drank, how belligerent you were to the cop who arrested you, and whether or not you’ve been busted before are all going to factor into that. So talk to your attorney. If you got a good one, they’ll be able to explain exactly what you’re up against. The right criminal defense attorney is always critical to the outcome of your case. That’s especially true in drunk driving cases.
