Warren DUI Lawyer

If you are facing a DUI charge, the time to take action is now. A conviction can lead to a decrease in social standing and can mean jail time – in addition to other life-altering consequences. Consulting with an experienced Warren DUI lawyer early on is the surest means of effecting a favorable case resolution.

Driving Under the Influence

The State of Michigan implements the charge of operating a vehicle under the influence, but the charge is commonly referred to as DUI – or driving under the influence. DUI charges can be issued in the following situations:

  • The driver is determined to be under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. 
  • The driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher.
  • The driver has any amount of controlled substance in their system. 

Michigan also has a charge for operating a vehicle while visibly impaired (OWVI), which requires only that the driver shows signs of being impaired by drugs or alcohol. 

The Penalties Faced

If you are convicted of a DUI, it will typically remain on your record for seven years in the State of Michigan. The penalties for DUI convictions become progressively more serious as the number of offenses rises. 

First Offense

A first offense comes with all the following potential penalties and fines:

  • Up to 93 days in jail and up to 180 days in jail if the BAC is .17 percent or higher
  • Fines of from $100 to $500 and from $200 to $700 if the BAC is .17 percent or higher
  • Community service of up to 360 hours

Second Offense

A second offense comes with all the following potential penalties and fines:

  • A mandatory five days in jail that can be extended up to one year
  • From $200 to 1,000 in fines
  • From 30 to 90 days of community service

Third Offense

A third offense comes with all the following potential penalties and fines:

  • One to five years in jail or from 30 days to a year if community service is also ordered
  • From $500 to 5,000 in fines
  • From 60 to 180 days of community service

Vehicle Immobilization

The judge in the DUI case has the discretion to order the immobilization of the defendant’s vehicle or forfeiture of their driver’s license. Both of these are optional for a first offense, but they’re mandatory for any subsequent convictions. 

Important Considerations

Even a first DUI conviction can lead to the following consequences:

  • A tarnished social standing
  • Difficulty renting a house or obtaining a home loan
  • The inability to obtain federal financial aid to attend college
  • The loss of professional licensure
