Southfield Repeat Offense Operating While Intoxicated Charges

It is illegal for anyone to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of liquor or another intoxicating substance (such as an illegal or prescription drug), or with a BAC over 0.08%. Those who have been convicted of OWI who are accused of a second offense within 7 years of the initial conviction can face significantly enhanced penalties, with more jail time, hefty fines, license revocation, and more at stake. While past offenses are not relevant for sentencing beyond 7 years, anyone with a history of OWI convictions will likely be viewed more harshly by the jury and judge, and could face more serious penalties regardless.
