Michigan Drunk Driving Laws
Michigan has a new “super drunk” law and many other laws that are in effect regarding DWI. At GOLDMAN & ASSOCIATES our attorney’s have the expertise and experience to help their clients. The penalties for being convicted of drunk driving can severely damage your future personal and financial well-being. A first DUI, which in MI is known as OWI (operating while intoxicated), can result in the following penalties: up to 93 days in jail, license suspension, hundreds of dollars in fines, community service, 6 points on your driving record, driving responsibility fees, vehicle immobilization and ignition interlock. You do not want an inexperienced attorney to be responsible for the outcome of such a serious matter. Moreover, if you have multiple convictions the consequences become even more severe. If convicted of a second or third drunk driving offense you may be required to spend significant time in jail and perhaps even prison. Do not take a risk with an inexperienced attorney. Hire a lawyer you can trust from GOLDMAN & ASSOCIATES and they will handle your case with the utmost of knowledge and professionalism.
Drunk driving penalties in Michigan are some of the most severe penalties in the country. It is not uncommon for first time offenders to receive jail time depending on what court and judge they find themselves in front of. Even if an offender does not receive jail time, hardships will be imposed. Probation, community service and fines and costs will be ordered. Points will be added to one’s driving record; license suspensions and driver responsibility fees will also come into play. Judges also have the ability to order rehabilitation and/or the completion of driving and alcohol and substance abuse courses.
Prior drunk driving offenses will enhance one’s current predicament. It is of no consequence whether one has been convicted of OWVI (Impaired Driving) or OWI (Operating While Intoxicated), or some other offense related to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In fact, once an offender is charged for a third time, the charge will be an automatic felony. Also important to note is that these offenses may be used to enhance subsequent offenses for an individual’s entire life. This is one reason why it is important to contact an attorney even if you have been arrested for the first time.
Most drunk driving offenses that cause death are felonies. Convictions for these offenses will often times lead offenders to prison. There are a wide variety of crimes a prosecutor may charge one with depending on the facts of any particular case. Second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, moving violation causing death (one year misdemeanor) and OWI/OUIL/UBAL/OWVI/OWPCS resulting in death are all crimes at a prosecutor’s disposal. Hiring an attorney when charged with one of these offenses is a no-brainer.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
DUI refers to the crime of operating a motor vehicle with blood alcohol levels in excess of the legal limit. There are also similar regulations that cover the operation of such vehicles while under the influence of other intoxicating substances.
Michigan DUI Law Facts
