Keyless Ignition Impact on APC Case in Michigan

Question: How would a car with a keyless ignition affect an actual physical control case in Michigan?

Answer: Whether it's a physical key or key fob or keyless ignition, the analysis is essentially the same. The legal issue to be addressed is operation. It's about control. It's about the timing of the control. So whether the car is running or not, whether there is a key or a fob located in the vehicle or on the person, whether you are in the driver's seat, the passenger seat or the back seat, whether there is evidence the car moved or had moved, are again all factors in consideration. The key legal issue is whether operation is or was present.

Client Reviews
Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
