Lawyer Kevin Bessant takes each drunk driving case seriously to ensure that you are given a fair shake with the law in your defense. As a highly successful lawyer, he refuses to simply “plead you out” and assume that you were intoxicated just because the police and test results allege you were.

Did you know that there are several defenses to a DUI arrest to aide in your case?

Even if the evidence against you is strong, the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates will evaluate every aspect of your case to help you reach the best possible outcome in court. If you have been arrested for DUI, OWI, OWVI or drunk driving, contact our office immediately, so we can begin working on your behalf.

Types of Drunk Driving Charges

If a person has been accused of driving under the influence, they may face the following charges:

  • General DUI (BAC of .08% or greater)
  • “Super Drunk Driving” (BAC of .17% or greater)
  • DUI as a person of non-drinking age (drivers under 21 years old can be charged with DUI with a BAC of less than 0.8%)
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • DUI with a passenger under the age of 16 in the car
  • DUI resulting in injury to others
  • DUI resulting in death to others

If you have been charged with any of the above offenses, contact the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates to discuss your case! Do not face the treacherous road of a DUI charge alone or with inexperienced counsel.

Charged Under Michigan’s Super Drunk Driving Law?

Charged with “Super Drunk Driving?” Allow Kevin Bessant to aggressively defend your DUI charges!

Under Michigan’s Super Drunk Driving or “High BAC” law, a person who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .17% or higher may be charged with a Super Drunk offense. Unlike a standard DUI, a person charged with Super Drunk Driving may face up to 180 days (six months) in jail, increased fines and costs, and a mandatory lengthy suspension of their driver’s license. Attorney Kevin Bessant can challenge the police findings and chemical tests of your high BAC offense.

We understand that bad things will sometimes happen to good people. Avoiding the penalties associated with a Super Drunk Driving conviction is of the utmost importance.

Penalties for Drunk Driving Convictions

The penalties issued by the courts and the State of Michigan for a drunk driving offense can depend on several factors, such as whether a person has any prior DUI offenses; whether the drunk driving caused an accident, serious injuries, or death; and even the judge handling the case or jurisdiction in which the DUI occurred.

A DUI can become a felony if you are charged with your third offense or if a death occurred as a result of the drunk driving. Allow the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates to help you minimize the penalties associated with a DUI conviction by aggressively fighting your charge.

People who have been charged with DUI may face penalties such as:

  • Imprisonment
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Decreased driving privileges, including license suspension, vehicle impoundment, or a requirement to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
  • Alcohol and drug education, as well as regular testing
