DWI Charges in Minnesota
If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated in Minnesota, you potentially face more than just criminal charges: Your driver's license is subject to revocation and your car may also be subject to forfeiture.
Administrative Consequences: Revocation of Your Driver's License and Forfeiture
After a DUI/DWI arrest, you will receive notice of driver's license revocation. If your blood alcohol concentration exceeded .08, the revocation is automatic. The revocation period can range from 90 days to a number of years, depending on the number of prior offenses.
If you were arrested for a second degree or higher DWI/DUI, you will receive notice of seizure of your vehicle. If the car you were driving belonged to someone else, that person will also have a forfeiture action against them.
You only have a limited period of time in which you can challenge a license revocation or vehicle forfeiture. It is critical to act quickly, or you will waive your right to a judicial hearing of these actions.
We will vigorously right to protect your driving privileges. However, if your license has already been revoked, we can explore available options to get it reinstated or significantly reduce the length of the revocation period. In many instances, we can work out deals to get back the vehicle while minimizing the cost to you.
The criminal consequences of a DUI / DWI arrest in Minnesota can include fines, probation, jail time and/or a chemical dependency evaluation. In addition, a DUI / DWI conviction on your record can have a major impact on your job and schooling.
At The Law Office of Rebecca Rhoda Fisher, PLLC, we make sure our clients are involved at every step in the process. We believe that a client who is well informed about their case, their rights, and their options enables them to make the best decisions possible at a difficult time.
We will gather and review all of the state's evidence, including audio and video evidence, the police report and the test results. We encourage each you to examine the evidence yourself. Then, we work closely with you to develop the most effective strategy.
When formulating our strategy, we will examine every aspect of the arrest. Was there probable cause to stop you? Did the arresting office properly administer field sobriety tests? Were you instructed of your rights before you made any statements? Was the Intoxilyzer test correctly administered? The law of blood, breath, and urine tests is constantly evolving, and just because you've taken a test does not mean you are guilty.
