“Will I go to jail?” is a question many people wonder after being charged with a DUI. Minnesota has four degrees of DUI charges from Fourth Degree DUI (a misdemeanor) to First Degree DUI (a felony). Having a high test reading (0.16 or higher), having a child under the age of 16 years in the vehicle, and having one of more prior DUI offense within 10 years are all “aggravating factors” and increase the seriousness of the charges.
For many people, the revocation or cancellation of your driver’s license can be one of the most difficult consequences of a DUI/DWI arrest. The State can also impound your license plates and, in some cases, seize your vehicle. An experienced DUI/DWI attorney can protect your rights and challenge your driver’s license revocation and/or vehicle forfeiture.
