When you are accused of driving after consuming alcohol, there are a number of charges you may be facing. The most common, OWI, or operating while intoxicated, usually occurs when a person drives with a BAC over the legal limit of 0.08%. DUI is simply another acronym (Driving Under the Influence) which refers to this charge, as is OUIL (Operating Under the Influence of Liquor. While it is possible to be convicted even with a BAC under 0.08%, these cases more commonly lead to charges of OWVI, or Operating While Visibly Impaired. Other drunk driving charges include Felony DUI, Child Endangerment, and Zero Tolerance Under 21 DUI.
If convicted of driving under the influence, you could face extremely serious penalties. In most cases, BAC evidence is utilized in order to get a conviction, with the legal limit for most drivers set at 0.08%. If you are under 21, you can face a DUI conviction with any blood alcohol level, usually measured at anything over 0.02% BAC. Commercial drivers face a BAC limit of 0.04%, even if they are not currently on shift, provided they drive on a commercial license.
If convicted of a regular OWI, you could be sentenced to up to 93 days in jail and a fine of up to $500, along with license suspension and more. If you already have a conviction on record, you could face up to a year behind bars, a fine of $1,000, a longer license revocation and more. If you are facing a third OWI charge, you could be convicted of a felony, and face extremely serious penalties, outlined in the Michigan Vehicle Code.
