The consequences for drunk driving in Michigan are steep, and those convicted of this crime could find themselves facing time behind bars or expensive fines. For drivers convicted of super DUI, which comes with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .17 or higher, the consequences are even more severe. It is always wise to know your defense options, but if you are facing a super DUI charge, your future and your freedom are certainly at risk.
Maybe it hit you while police were taking your fingerprints that you could have caused an accident that night. Driving after drinking is dangerous - everybody knows that - but you didn't think you had that much to drink. Maybe you'd driven home before in worse condition and made it home without incident.
Driving under the influence is treated seriously in Michigan, with laws targeting both lower and higher blood-alcohol levels. Anyone driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or higher risks getting charged with DUI, which means that most people have some leeway if they go out and have a drink, though they still need to be careful about how much they drink and turning over their car keys if they become impaired.
