Minnesota DWI? Fight to Save your mn Driver's License From Suspension!
If you drive after losing your license, you may have to pay a high bond or bail to get out of jail. Under Minnesota state law, you also will face another criminal charge up to and including a gross misdemeanor (up to a year in jail and up to a $3,000 fine).
What can I do to save my license?
- First and foremost, hire an attorney experienced with Minnesota Drivers License and DWI laws. There are many factors to consider.
- Request a hearing and demand the officers' presence. It will give you a preview of a trial, a rarity in criminal cases. All officers involved in the case must show up and justify their actions which resulted in the revocation of your license.
- Retest the sample, if possible. Testing errors may save your license.
- Investigate the adequacy of the stop. The officer must have had a reasonable suspicion that a crime or traffic infraction was being committed.
- Investigate the adequacy of the arrest and request for a test. In most cases the officer must have developed probable cause to believe that you were impaired by alcohol.
- Check the times of events. Officers must perform the tests within certain guidelines.
- Check the labeling of the sample. It must be identified as being yours.
- Demand an Implied Consent license reinstatement hearing in front of a judge. Fabrications and other errors are often first noticed at these hearings.
