Criminal defense: Over 480 arrested in drunk driving operation

The holiday season often brings many occasions for people to attend parties and celebrations where alcoholic beverages are served. During this time, law enforcement officials routinely focus on curtailing the number of people who get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking. A recent effort by Michigan police resulted in over 480 motorists focusing on criminal defense concerns following their arrests for alleged drunk driving.

Drugged driving tests could affect your criminal defense needs

Drivers usually understand that they might be asked to submit to a Breathalyzer or blood test if pulled over for suspected drunken driving, but a new program could have officers asking for something else. At least one Michigan county is launching a one-year program that allows officers to administer saliva tests during traffic stops. This could have serious implications for criminal defense plans.

DUI criminal defense unlikely to be affected by expiring law

The legal blood-alcohol limit for driving in Michigan is .08, the same as many other states across the rest of the United States. This similarity in legal limits is not a coincidence, as federal funding for state highway needs are tied to keeping the BAC limit for driving at .08. Although this limit is set to expire soon, it is unlikely that it will affect the criminal defense for those accused of drunk driving.

Criminal defense: getting a DUI in the driveway

One man recently found out the hard way that being behind the wheel while intoxicated is not a good idea, even if the driver in his or her own yard. According to a ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court, a man who was discovered driving drunk in his own driveway could need a criminal defense lawyer. This decision reverses an earlier ruling.
