Dan Geherin, OWI Attorney Discusses Defense Strategies in Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- OWI stands for operating while intoxicated, and it's the legal term used in the State of Michigan for drunk driving. Many people are more used to the terms driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI), and they continue to use them interchangeably with OWI.

Many who face OWI charges are under the mistaken belief that there's no way to fight the state's case – even when they're convinced that they weren't impaired behind the wheel in the first place. The state's case is likely far less ironclad than they would like you to believe. There are a range of powerful OWI defense strategies that may apply to your case.

1.     Field Sobriety Tests

2.     Chemical Tests

3.     Additional Defense Strategies

If you've been charged with OWI, there are additional OWI defense strategies to consider. To begin, the police must have reasonable suspicion regarding criminal activity to stop you in the first place. While this isn't a difficult barrier to meet, the police need probable cause to arrest you, and for this, the bar is considerably higher. Absent probable cause, the state's case could fall apart.
