Third OWI Offense Attorney in Lansing

Anyone who has previous DUI convictions on record who is faced with a new accusation needs to contact an experienced Lansing drunk driving defense lawyer as soon as possible. If you have been questioned in connection with alleged intoxicated driving, or arrested for drunk driving, police and prosecutors will already be aggressively working to gather evidence against you in efforts to take your driving privileges away and put you behind bars for as long as possible.

3rd Offense OWI Felony Drunk Driving in Lansing – Criminal Defense Lawyer

Throughout the state of Michigan, it is illegal to drive while impaired by alcohol, or with a blood alcohol content level over 0.08%. Though special conditions exist for commercial drivers and underage drivers, most OWI cases involve a high BAC of over 0.08%. Though OWI can result if officers have other convincing evidence to demonstrate that a person was impaired despite a BAC below the legal limit, most cases involve blood alcohol to at least some extent.

First and second offense OWI cases can lead to misdemeanor conviction, but a third offense will result in felony charges. Along with DUI causing injury or death, or drunk driving with a child in the vehicle, third offense OWI in Lansing is one of the most serious DUI-related offenses a person can face.

Penalties for 3rd Offense DUI in Michigan

If convicted of a third drunk driving offense, you will be subject to the following penalties:

  • Between 1 and 5 years in jail.
  • A fine of up to $5,000.
  • Up to 180 days of community service.
  • License revocation for 5 years, mandatory appeal hearing to win back your license.
  • License plate confiscation and inability to register another vehicle.
  • Vehicle forfeiture, or immobilization.
  • IID installation upon regaining license.
