A client was charged with superdrunk (operating while intoxicated with BAC of over .17) in Eaton County. His BAC was actually .27%. The client is in his early 20’s, lives in Illinois, and was in Michigan for work purposes when he picked up the charge.
The client contacted attorney Tiffany DeBruin to handle his case. He was not required to appear personally for court. We had him arraigned and went through the entire process without him having to be physically present in Michigan and we conducted all hearings via zoom.
Attorney DeBruin spoke with the prosecutor to point out the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, and successfully got her client’s charge reduced. The client pled guilty to operating while visibly impaired and was sentenced to fines and cost without any additional sanctions.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
