how long do the courts have to charge you with a dwi from the time of the arrest in minnesota?
2 Answers from Attorneys
Your likely already charged. Better check with the court about a court date.
A prosecuting attorney has 3 years to charge you. Typically, the timeliness of the charging procedure is driven by the type of test you performed (i.e., breath, blood or urine sample). Blood and Urine tests take longer because they require a laboratory to test the sample. I suggest you contact court administration and or a Minnesota DWI lawyer to discuss your matter. Most Criminal Defense Attorneys in Minnesota offer a free case evaluation. Let me know if you have questions.
