Felony Drunk Driving Charges – 3rd Offense OWI in Detroit, MI

If you are caught operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, you could be charged with Operating While Intoxicated. For most drivers, the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.08%, and anyone who can be shown to have operated a vehicle with a BAC over this level can be legally assumed to be intoxicated. Commercial drivers and underage drivers must adhere to stricter restrictions.

If you already have two prior offenses on record, your situation is much more serious. Facing a third DUI allegation could result in felony allegations, and without the help of an experienced lawyer, you will likely be subjected to life-altering penalties. Some of the possible punishments you could face may be up to 5 times more severe than those for a misdemeanor conviction, and many could last indefinitely. In addition, as a repeat offender, it is much more likely that you will receive a sentence closer to the maximum, as opposed to a more favorable outcome. Let our attorneys help you get the best available result; contact Grabel & Associates now for a free case consultation.
