Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the state need to prove for a Michigan drunk driving case?
    The prosecutor must prove that you violated the state law on Operating While Intoxicated (OWI). This means showing evidence that you had a BAC in excess of .08 percent or you were impaired by alcohol, such as slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.
  • How does a judge sentence someone for DUI?
    For a first offense, the court could order up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both. The jail sentence increases to a year for a second offense, and you could face felony charges for more than three DUI convictions.
  • Are there other consequences?
    Your driver’s license could be suspended for up to 180 days, and you will receive 6 points on your driving record. Plus, you may need to participate in DUI education and community service to get your license reinstated after the suspension period.
  • What evidence can I challenge for drunk driving charges?
    In some cases, you may contest the BAC results if the chemical test was not administered under proper circumstances. Without this evidence, the prosecution may not be able to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • How can I fight DUI charges?
    Other ways to dispute the charges include contesting the roadside stop and probable cause for arrest. You might also be able to work out a plea bargain with the prosecutor to lower the charges, but you will be required to plead guilty.
  • Can a Portage OWI defense lawyer help me navigate the legal process?
    An attorney is critical for tackling challenges with both the criminal case and your driver’s license. Your lawyer has experience with the laws and courtroom, so your case is in good hands.
