Six months ago, I posted this question, http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/how-long-for-dui-blood-test-results-in-michigan--638832.html on this website regarding the length of time for blood test results from a dui detainment to come in. At that time, despite having blown a .05, I was still taken to a hospital for a blood draw, booked, finger printed and released without formal charges. Two weeks ago, I received a an evelope from the police department returning my driver's lic. and stating that my blood test results had come in .04, with no presence of drugs(not surpring, as I don't take any at all, not even prescription pharmaceuticals). Yesterday however, I got a summons stating I had been charged with an OWVI, 13 months after the daetainment. I am looking to hire an attorneyTo complete the question: How is this possible. I have talked to several people, no one has heard of anything like this. The stop occured in the Ann Arbor area, and while I was sleep-deprived, I certainly was not chemically impaired. What are the merits, based upon first glance of course, of fighting this in court?
