Why have I been charged with a number of offenses?
An individual arrested for drunk driving in Minnesota will typically be charged with:
(1) Driving While Impaired (DWI);
(2) Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) over .08%;
(3) Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) over .08% within 2 hours of driving; or
(4) Refusal to Submit to Testing.
These charges are the various ways of committing a violation under MN. Stat. § 169A. A person can only be convicted of one of the above DWI related offenses and all the others must be dismissed at the time of sentencing.
