Field Sobriety Tests in Michigan
I am not in trouble for drinking and driving. This was an information question only. Are you required to submit to field sobriety tests in Michigan ? Is there a penalty for refusing? I was always told to never answer questions without a lawyer present and I personally consider a Field Sobriety Test the same as answering questions but I dont want to get myself in trouble if it ever happens and I refuse. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

This is a very good question, however, it really is very difficult to answer. Rarely, if ever, are things...
Jail options on 3rd DUI
What will my options be for potential work release if I am convicted on a 3rd DUI? I have 2 amazing kids and a great job that supports my wife and them. I am fighting the merits of the case but need to prepare for the worst. What are the chances I am able to keep this from my employer and keep my job if convicted. I cannot lose this job as i am the one that supports our family. So scared.
It really depends on the judge. Some will grant work release in certain cases and others will not. An experience...
I was arrested for a 2nd owi in Michigan, is it possible to get a restricted license to and from work in lieu of the suspension
I have a previous owi and will fall under the superdrunk law on this recent arrest
