35th District Court
There are several different police jurisdictions within Plymouth and they are Plymouth City Police, Plymouth Police who serve the Township of Plymouth, the Wayne County Sheriff, and Michigan State Police.
Regardless who arrested you, your case will be heard at the 35th District Court in Plymouth on Plymouth road. One of three judges will preside over your case: Judge Plakas, Judge Lowe, or Judge Gerou.
Each of the judges handle drinking and driving cases differently. All of the judges will likely order that you don’t drink alcohol while you are being accused of drunk driving. Judge Plakas however will often require that the person accused of DUI will be required to randomly test for alcohol while their case is pending.
Boria prides himself on being familiar with the court, prosecutors, the judges and their procedures, so that our clients know what to expect before it happens when being accused of DUI.
The court procedure for OWI in the 35th District Court is the same as any district court in the state. By Michigan Court Rule, the case will start with an arraignment and is followed by a pretrial. Depending on the direction of your case you will proceed to trial, sentencing, or a dismissal after the pretrial hearing.
OWI Plymouth Lawyer
There are three main areas to challenge an Operating While Intoxicated charge.
The first area is the stop. Police must have a legal reason to pull you over; they cannot just stop you because they feel like it. A bad stop could mean the dismissal of the charges against you.
The second area to challenge an operating while intoxicated charge is the arrest. Even if the stop was legal but the arrest wasn’t then your case will be dismissed.
Finally, the last major area to challenge an OWI is the chemical testing which is usually performed at the Plymouth police station. If the testing wasn’t performed correctly then the results can be suppressed and if they are your case will be dismissed.
Even if the police properly stopped you, arrested you, and performed chemical testing properly for drinking and driving OWI lawyer Aaron J. Boria can still get you great results.
Many of the cases we handle are hopeless. Our client clearly behaved in such a way that would lead the common person to believe that they violated the DUI laws. Still, we are usually able to save them hundreds if not thousands of dollars, keep their license, save them from points, and keep them out of jail.
