2nd Offense Against Michigan's Super Drunk Law

Driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over 0.08% is illegal in Michigan, but enhanced penalties can apply if you operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.17%. For first time offenders, a super drunk law DUI charge can result in increased jail time, fines, and license suspension, while second offenders will face repeat OWI offender penalties. If you are facing a second OWI charge within 7 years and are accused of driving with a high BAC, your blood alcohol content will likely be taken into account throughout your case making it essential to work with a skilled criminal defense attorney.

Criminal Penalties for Super Drunk DUI Repeat Offender

Like a first offense OWI charge, a 2nd offense is still a misdemeanor. While a high BAC can result in super drunk law enhanced penalties for a first offender, a second offense within 7 years will be punished as other repeat OWI offenses would be. You could face up to 1 year in jail, along with up to 90 days community service. You will also face a mandatory fine of up to $1,000, and have to pay driver responsibility fees. You may have your vehicle immobilized or even forfeited, and you will receive 6 points on your driver’s license. In addition, your DL will be revoked for a minimum of 1 year, and after this period you will have to apply for a DAAD hearing at which you may or may not win back your ability to operate a motor vehicle. If you drive again, you may require installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle as well.
