Michigan DWI Probation

When you are convicted of driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over 0.08%, you can be sentenced to jail time, fines, driver responsibility fees, community service, driver’s license suspension or revocation, and potential DUI probation. The terms and length of your probation period are dependent on the specifics of your Operating While Intoxicated case, and oftentimes defendants are not even aware of every term and detail of their probation. Contact Grabel & Associates now if you have been sentenced to probation or have any questions about drunk driving defense in Michigan.

Drunk Driving Probation Lawyer in Michigan

If you are convicted of a misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol charge, you could face probation of between 3 months and 1 year. If this is your second or subsequent DUI conviction, you could face increased penalties that could include lengthened probation. The specific terms of your probation will be decided based on the exact charge you are convicted of and your criminal history, but may involve DUI treatment. This can involve regularly attending alcohol abuse classes, along with periodic blood or urine testing to determine if you have been drinking.

You may also have to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle, which will record your blood alcohol content (BAC) before you are allowed to start your vehicle. Attempting to drive after you have been drinking can result in probation violation charges, which could lead to jail time, fines, or lengthened probation. Grabel & Associates will fight for you throughout your case to ensure you avoid unnecessary punishment.

We work with clients in even the most difficult alcohol intoxication and traffic violation cases, and will protect your constitutional rights and fight to regain your driving privileges and freedom.

If you violate any of these terms or commit a new crime while on probation, you could be sentenced to increased criminal penalties. Contact our aggressive criminal defense team to fight against jail, fines, and other restrictions on your freedom after an alleged probation violation.
