Edgerton, MN asked in DUI / DWI for Minnesota

Q: My fiancé was charged in Minnesota for a DUI almost a year ago, it will be 1 year next month. They are now telling him

They are now telling him he was never booked or fingerprinted. Can he fight that? Or does he have to comply and go in since it was their mess up and he was technically never arrested for the crime.

A: Getting booked and fingerprinted is a requirement when someone is charged with a DWI. I’m guessing that didn’t happen because of the pandemic. So he will need to go through the process. It doesn’t take long and he won’t have to spend any time in jail.
