Question: I've been charged with Super Drunk in Dearborn, Michigan, and I need to drive for work, but I'm afraid I will lose my license, what can we do to keep my license?
Well drunk driving cases in Dearborn have four outcomes. Your case might go to trial, and you will be found guilty or not-guilty, your case could be dismissed or reduced down to a lower charge.
As of right now you are facing a charge with a charge that carries a license suspension of 45 days and 320 days of driving with a restricted permit. You will also be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle during the restricted time period, and face possible vehicle immobilization or forfeiture. Will this be the outcome of your case? Well if you go to trial and are found guilty then yes this would happen to your license. If you pursue a reduction in charges it might be possible to get much more favorable license sanctions.
So you're asking how does this happen? Well the prosecuting attorney is the one who decides if your case will be reduced. As a former prosecutor, I can tell you this is case-by-case and depends upon the city, town or county. Most people charged with a DUI in Michigan feel powerless, but I've developed a proactive approach that empowers my clients to take control of their case.
