DUI / OWI Laws in Michigan
It is against the law to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A driver with blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher is considered to be legally intoxicated; however, officers can arrest you for DUI even if your BAC falls below the legal limit. Officers who believe a driver is intoxicated can make an arrest and charge the driver with OWI. An OWI is a serious charge and can affect your reputation and future, both professionally and personally. For that reason, it is vital to contact an experienced Oakland County OWI defense lawyer who can reduce or even dismiss your charges to prevent facing serious consequences.
DUI / OWI Penalties in Michigan
Drivers facing OWI charges, even for the first time, may be subject to jail time, fines, probation, and more. Not even first-time OWI cases should be taken lightly because they can also lead to serious penalties.
Possible OWI charges in Michigan include:
- $100-$500 in fines
- Up to 93 days in jail
- Up to 360 hours of community service
- Ignition-interlock device installment
- Vehicle immobilization
- Six points on a driving record
- Driver's license suspension for as long as 30 days
- Alcohol classes and rehabilitation programs
- Mandatory attendance of MAAD meetings
Evaluating a DUI / OWI Case in Michigan
Investigating your DUI / OWI arrest is crucial and can make a difference in the reduction or dismissal of your charges. However, many people make the mistake of hiring lawyers with little experience with local DUI/OWI procedures. Hiring an attorney like me, an experienced local DUI/OWI attorney in Farmington Hills, is crucial because a thorough investigation and evaluation of police procedure can help me suppress evidence and weaken the case against you. There is a reason why 50% of DUI trials in America result in acquittals, and more than 90% in Michigan results in reduced charges and plea deals.
