Common Domestic Violence Questions

Every day, Dan answers calls from people facing allegations of Domestic Violence. Many ask these same questions:
“What is Domestic Violence? What must be proven?”
“Is Domestic Violence a misdemeanor, or felony?”
“How do I prove my innocence if I didn’t commit this offense”
“Will I go to jail/prison if I’m guilty of Domestic Violence?”
“If my spouse wants the charges dismissed, will the whole criminal charge simply go away?”
Domestic Violence charges are brought by the State, City or Township Prosecutor—not by the individual complainant/alleged victim. Charges range from a 93-day maximum misdemeanor offense to a 4-year maximum felony offense. What typically explains the wide difference in charges? Two factors: Degree of Injury and Prior Domestic Violence conviction(s) (if applicable).
Unfortunately, these charges are occasionally imposed by a disgruntled lover or angry spouse aiming to get advantage in a divorce/custody fight. Likewise, people are often arrested for Domestic Violence when in reality the complainant/alleged victim does not want or request prosecution.

Know the Difference Between An OWI and a DUI


Most states call a drunk driving case a “DUI.”  Some call it “DWI.”  Michigan, on the other hand, uses a complicated acronym designation for alcohol (and drug) driving offenses.  For starters, Michigan uses “O” for “Operation” instead of “D” for driving.  Why?  Because Michigan laws punish more conduct than simply driving.  For example, a person parked in a car might be charged and convicted of OWI in Michigan even if the police did not see him move the car one inch!

Lastly, Michigan uses “VI” for “Visibly Impaired” to cover all substance abuse driving offenses (drug and alcohol) where there might not be an unlawful blood alcohol level or controlled substance used, but rather the person’s ability to operate a motor vehicle is visibly impaired by the use of alcohol, controlled substances, or both.  Often times, people who are involved in accidents while using their prescribed medications face OWVI charges---even if their levels were within normal, therapeutic levels.
f you or a loved one has been arrested for any substance-related driving offense and are confused over the laws, consequences and possible defenses, please contact Dan Geherin and his team at GLG Michigan.  We’re available 24/7, and we will help put you at ease, form a plan to handle your case, and fight aggressively to achieve personal justice.  Schedule online at GLGMichigan, or call (734) 263-2780 anytime 24/7.
