Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Michigan law calls drunk driving Operating While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated – OWI / DUI / DWI, which specifically forbids the driver of any motorized vehicle, including boats and go-carts, from operating the vehicle after consuming intoxicating beverages or any intoxicating substance. If the substance or beverage is alcohol, a BAC, or bodily alcohol content of .08% is illegal. It is imperative that you hire an experienced OWI attorney to defend your case as there are several factors to consider in creating the best defense strategy possible.
Driving Under the Influence – Second Offense
The penalties for a second offense are much more serious than for a first. As stated above, a violation is considered a second offense if it has occurred with seven years of your first DUI / OWI / DWI conviction. Even out-of-state convictions may be considered during sentencing. Jail time is much more likely and so is a license revocation.
Driving Under the Influence – Third Offense
A person who is arrested for any drunk or drugged driving charge who has two prior drunk driving convictions, no matter how long ago any of those two prior offenses occurred, faces a felony third offense DUI / OUI / OWI charge.
Super Drunk Driving
Super Drunk Driving is the same as an OWI, but with a blood alcohol content of at least .17%, or at least twice the legal limit and with much harsher penalties.
Operating Under the Influence of Drugs or Marijuana
Operating Under the Influence of Drugs or Marijuana (OUI or DUI) or Operating With Any Presence of a Drug (OWPD) is a serious charge requiring the experience of a strong criminal defense attorney.
