What Can I Expect to Happen with a Lincoln Park DUI Charge?

The Impaired Driving Law of Michigan states that “it is a crime for a driver to have a bodily alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or greater” anywhere in the state. Lincoln Park, like other small towns in Wayne County, has a unique local character that may shed some light on what to expect for your case.

According to the latest data , the city's population now stands at around 39,741 individuals and has been more or less stable since 2010. While the city's website is useful, you'll find more up-to-date information on their Facebook page , such as volunteer events, blood drives, and special exhibitions at the local historical museum. Crime in Lincoln Park is quite high by Michigan standards; it varies dramatically by neighborhood, with Youth Center Park being the safest and Lincoln Park Southwest and East being the worst. Lincoln Park does see a significant number of DUI cases as well.

While the public in Lincoln Park, Michigan refers to drunk driving cases as DUIs, these cases are officially known as OWIs or Operating While Intoxicated in the Michigan courts and legal community. In this article, OWIs and DUIs mean the same thing.

Arrested & Charged with DUI in Lincoln Park, Michigan

If you have been arrested and charged with DUI in Lincoln Park, the prosecutor will try every trick to obtain a conviction, which would severely impact your career prospects, your driving privileges, your personal finances, and perhaps most importantly -- your freedom . The stigma of a DUI conviction can have lasting consequences for your personal and professional life, such as insurance hikes, employment obstacles, permit revocation and travel limitations. Mr. Boulahanis, however, will be happy to investigate your case to determine the best legal defense and outcome.

A ticket or summons charging you with DUI will normally be heard at the 25th District Court:

25th District Court
1475 Cleophus
Lincoln Park, Michigan 48146
Near Southfield Road

The court location may change depending on circumstances, so it's best to consult with your attorney about the actual location, whether you need to appear and at what time. The defense of DUI offenses is much more complex than a routine traffic violation and the law can be extremely unforgiving. A knowledgeable, seasoned attorney, intimately familiar with the Michigan Vehicle Code and the 25th District court procedures will achieve a better outcome for you.
