3rd OWI Charge in Muskegon, Michigan

Operating While Intoxicated charges result either when a person is deemed to be unable to safely operate a motor vehicle by a police officer through field tests, observations, and BAC evidence, or when a person is caught driving with a BAC over the legal limit of 0.08%, in which case no other evidence is needed in order to assume a person is impaired. If you are under 21 or if you are driving with a commercial license, your legal BAC limit may be lower, so contact an attorney right away and ask how Michigan DUI law could affect your case.

First and second offense OWI charges are misdemeanors, but anyone who faces a third OWI after two previous convictions will face a felony charge. Contact an attorney to find out if your past convictions are relevant for sentencing, and how you can fight back against BAC evidence or other police and prosecutor tactics in an OWI case.
