Dedicated DWI/DUI Defense Attorney Helping St. Cloud and Minneapolis Clients
DWI/DUI charges can result in serious penalties in the state of Minnesota. Many carry possible jail time, suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, and criminal probation, not to mention the many fines and fees associated with DWI/DUI. If you’ve been charged with DWI/DUI, putting together the right legal defense can make a world of difference in protecting your interests and eliminating or minimizing negative outcomes.
DUI/DWI Penalties in Minnesota
There are a range of penalties associated with DUI/DWI convictions in Minnesota, and they all increase in severity as the offense gets more serious. Higher speeds, greater intoxication, or resulting injuries can all lead to more serious charges, as does having a child in the car at the time of the offense. Additional DUI/DWI convictions will lead to more severe penalties each time.
First-time DUI/DWI convictions without a minor present and a blood alcohol content (BAC) below 0.16 carry a maximum jail sentence of 90 days, maximum fines of $1,000, up to two years of probation, and a revoked license for 30 days. On top of that, you may need to pay for increased car insurance premiums and costly education classes.
Strategic DUI/DWI Defense
Although DUI/DWI charges are serious, there are a number of legal defenses in Minnesota that can invalidate or mitigate the claims against you. If you can demonstrate that your constitutional rights were violated or that the breathalyzer test was not administered correctly, for example, you may be able to invalidate the state’s case against you.
