Best DUI Defenses in Michigan
Both as a prosecutor and defense attorney, I've had my share of cases where the charged party was alleged to have been "driving", but from the evidence, it's not exactly a slam dunk. Here are some questions to ask yourself if you believe you may have the "I Wasn't Driving Defense"
- If the officer did not observe you driving, did anyone see the car in motion?
- Were you behind the wheel when the police arrived?
- Were you asleep or awake?
- Was the engine running? If so, in what gear?
- If the engine was off, were the keys in the ignition?
- Was the vehicle stopped or parked, and, if so, did it intrude into the roadway?
- Did the police receive a 911 cell phone call from another driver?
- Had you been in a collision? Could the incident be termed an accident or something less? Was the car drivable?
