Mr. Keller’s client was charged with Driving after Cancellation as Inimical to Public Safety (DAC-IPS) which happens when a driver’s license is cancelled for too many DWI’s, as well as fourth degree DWI and driving in violation of a restricted license (B-card violation).  Even though his client had 3 prior DWI’s, Mr. Keller got his client’s implied consent driver’s license revocation thrown out in March, 2011 when he showed that his client had a prescription for the drugs that showed up in a blood test after the client was arrested for DWI.  The same test showed that the driver had NO ALCOHOL in his system whatsoever.  Then, at a contested omnibus hearing in the Dakota County DWI  criminal case on July 20, 2011, Mr. Keller got the criminal fourth degree DWI charge dismissed for the same reasons, even though his client had 3 prior DWI’s so that this was his fourth repeat DWI.  His client, who plead guilty to DAC, received no jail time and was very happy.

What to Do If You Have Been Charged with a Criminal Offense

One of the questions people facing a criminal charge ask is: How long does a criminal case take? The timeline of your criminal case in Minnesota will depend on the nature and severity of the alleged crime, the speed of the criminal justice system, the duration of the trial, and whether an appeal will be necessary. Delays at any stage of the criminal justice process may impact how long your criminal case will last. Generally, however, misdemeanor cases may resolve within weeks or months, while felony cases may linger in courts for up to a year.
People accused, arrested, or charged with a crime often ask, “How much does a criminal defense lawyer cost in Minneapolis, MN?” It is difficult to accurately determine how much a criminal defense lawyer will cost. The reason is that numerous factors impact the cost of legal representation in criminal matters. These factors include the type and severity of criminal charges, the lawyer’s experience and reputation, required time and effort, and geographical location.
Social media can have legal implications, particularly when it comes to criminal cases. Since its advent, social media has become a powerful tool for communication and self-expression. As of 2023, an estimated 4.9 billion people worldwide use social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram to share thoughts, experiences, and moments from their lives. However, in this digital age, social media activity can be used as evidence in criminal cases in Minneapolis and elsewhere.
