What Is a DWI?

In Minnesota, the terms "DUI" and "DWI" hold slightly different meanings. DUI, or driving under the influence, can refer to drivers who are impaired by either alcohol or drugs, or both.

On the other hand, DWI, or driving while intoxicated, applies when a driver's blood alcohol concentration is above the state's legal limit of .08%.

Cases We Handle

Driving while intoxicated is a serious offense that can result in severe penalties. If you are convicted of a DWI, you may face fines, jail time, license suspension, or even an ignition interlock device installed in your car.

  • 1. Don’t Talk to the Police!

    It’s crucial to know that while you should remain respectful with authorities, you have the right to remain silent. This a right protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which makes it clear individuals are protected from being compelled to be a witness against him / herself in criminal matters.

    It’s important to note that:

    • Talking will not help you avoid an arrest. If law enforcement has probable cause to arrest you, then they will arrest you.
    • By speaking, you risk making a confession or providing information that can be used to indict you, even unknowingly.
    • Even if you feel that information being discussed is “harmless,” it is still in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment right.
  • 2. Ask for a Lawyer!
    As soon as you can you should elect your right to have a defense attorney present. A Minnesota criminal defense lawyer or public defender can ensure the police do not violate your rights and help you avoid saying anything incriminating during questioning. Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so that we can be by your side whenever you need us. Call now!
