When you are charged with a 3rd high blood alcohol OWI Offense, it is important to realize the severity of the accusations you are facing.

In high blood alcohol content cases, you could face jail time, fines, driver’s license revocation, and mandatory treatment, which makes it crucial to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney throughout your drunk driving case.

The Michigan Vehicle Code explains the penalties associated with OWI and high BAC charges in Michigan, and our attorneys will defend you if you are facing any Michigan drunk driving charge. In felony OWI cases, you could face a prison term of between one and five years, or a jail term along with community service. 

You could also be forced to pay as much as $5,000 in fines, and additional driver responsibility fees later on. You will receive 6 driver’s license points and have your driving privileges revoked for 5 years or more, at which point you can attempt to win back your license at a DAAD hearing.
