Searching for the Lake Orion Michigan DUI Legal Counsel?

For serious DUI charges, there are mandatory sentencing conditions that are non-negotiable upon conviction that include jail or prison, up to 360 community service hours, alcohol/substance abuse treatment, and vehicle immobilization or forfeiture.  The Judge has discretion in these cases in the amount of jail/prison, number of community service hours, and type of substance abuse treatment that he or she imposes.  There is a potential defense to vehicle immobilization/forfeiture when another person's car is used and the owner was unaware of the drinking and driving.  Other DUI convictions can lead to incarceration and/or probation with probationary conditions that are often determined based upon a mandatory alcohol screening upon conviction. The Michigan Secretary of State, when notified by a Court of an DUI conviction, always issues either a restriction, suspension, or revocation to driving privileges based upon the prior DUI history and the conviction offense.  Under current Michigan law, DUI convictions cannot be expunged, and are thus permanently affixed to your driving and criminal record.  Because of this, you need a real fighter to represent you.
