Mr. Vang has the experience necessary to make sure police and prosecutors are following the rules, and—if legal sanctions are still called for--to negotiate with authorities for a fair sentence.

Underage DUI Laws in Wyoming
Anyone under the age of 21 cannot consume alcohol and drive in Wyoming with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.02% or more. Unfortunately, the consumption of a single alcoholic beverage can place someone at a 0.02% BAC level. The consequences for that one drink are serious. The first offense means a 90-day suspension of a driver’s license and fines that may go as high as $750. The second offense sees the suspension go up to six months along with a one-year ignition interlock requirement for the person’s personal vehicle, and perhaps 30 days behind bars. A third offense will result in an ignition interlock requirement for 2 – years and the jail term can be as long as six months.
Judges also have the option of ordering a convicted defendant into substance abuse treatment programs, either in addition to, or in lieu of, any of the sanctions outlined above.
R. Michael Vang P.C. teaches attorneys in Wyoming and throughout the United States how to defend people accused in DUI and implied consent proceedings. The Wyoming Supreme Court has addressed several of the legal issues raised by Mr. Vang in defense of his clients' rights and privileges.
