MICHAEL P. DEARMITT – OWI / DUI ATTORNEY IN BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, IN
A conviction for Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (OWI or DUI) can carry significant legal and practical consequences. Some of these include:
- Possible jail/prison time
- Increased penalties for a subsequent conviction
- Driver’s license suspension
- Expense of carrying high-risk insurance
- Potential loss of employment
Michael P. DeArmitt has handled hundreds of OWI cases in his legal career. He understands the legal standards the police must meet in order to pull you over, as well as the rules the police are supposed to follow in administering field sobriety tests and/or a certified chemical test (such as the certified breath test they give someone at the police station). If the police fail to meet these standards your case might be subject to dismissal, or a judge could rule out certain evidence against you at trial. This could increase your chance of a favorable result at trial and/or the opportunity to negotiate a favorable plea agreement.
