Arrested For DUI/DWI? Call Us Immediately
Perhaps you were just having a fun night out with friends. Maybe you didn’t intend to drive after that last drink, but it happened anyway, and suddenly you’ve been arrested for driving while intoxicated. Your right to a phone call is crucial when it comes to defending your case, and the first call you make should be to an experienced DWI/DUI lawyer.
DWI and DUI crimes are treated as serious offenses in the state of Minnesota. The first offense is considered a misdemeanor, and if convicted, you could face up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, as well as having your driver’s license revoked. If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, call the Vermeulen Law Office, P.A. right away.
Is There a Difference Between DUI and DWI?
A DWI, or “Driving While Intoxicated,” typically references your alcohol-concentration level. If you take a field sobriety test and register a 0.08 or higher, you’re at risk for being charged with DWI. Minnesota employs a zero-tolerance policy for persons under the age of 21, and if caught you could be charged for any alcohol-concentration level.
DUI, or “Driving Under the Influence,” may or may not cite a certain alcohol-concentration level. For DUIs, the prosecutor must only prove that the driver’s ability to operate the vehicle was impaired.
Whether you’re facing a DWI or DUI, the implications of seriousness are the same. Either can negatively affect your way of life for years to come, and it’s important to tread carefully in the time immediately following your arrest.
