Criminal defense: Police charge man with history of DUIs

Michigan police recently arrested a man for allegedly getting behind the wheel of his vehicle while intoxicated. According to reports, the man also attempted to flee from police on foot. As this is not his first DUI offense, timely and careful attention to criminal defense may be helpful in minimizing some of the legal consequences he is facing.

Criminal defense: Hit-and-run accident leads to charges

Michigan police arrested a woman believed to have been involved in a deadly drunk driving collision. Although she allegedly fled the scene of the crime, authorities were able to locate the suspected driver a short while later. Crafting a strong criminal defense is essential when facing serious charges such as these. 

Criminal defense: Michigan driver charged with DUI

A Michigan man was arrested after a traffic stop in the early hours of the morning. He was charged with drunk driving and possession of a firearm while intoxicated as well as resisting arrest. It is not clear if he has any criminal defense plans yet. 

Criminal defense: Driver arrested after fatal crash

A Michigan man is in police custody following an accident in which one person was killed. The driver believed to have caused the wreck was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, and as such is facing multiple serious charges. These types of allegations often require careful criminal defense action from defendants. 

New law to limit forfeiture after successful criminal defense

Civil forfeiture is one of the more controversial aspects of arrests or investigations. Recently, lawmakers in Michigan passed a bill 83-26 to tighten the rules on what property can be seized by police in relation to drug investigations. The law will ensure the property of those who are found innocent in their criminal defense cannot be held by law enforcement.

Expansion of surveillance camera may affect criminal defense

Video evidence, such as security footage, often plays a major role in criminal trials. Michigan criminal defense attorneys may be dealing with an increasing amount of this type of evidence thanks to an expansion to Detroit's real-time surveillance monitoring program. According to the mayor's office, there are plans to roll this controversial system out to educational institutions throughout the school.

Criminal defense: Michigan CPS supervisor accused of DUI

A Children's Protective Services supervisor operating in Traverse City was arrested the night of March 2 after being accused of driving drunk. The 38-year-old Michigan resident faces charges of DUI and assaulting a police officer. She was allegedly on call during this incident. The woman must now turn her focus to preparing an criminal defense, particularly given her employment with CPS. 

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.
