When you are accused of driving under the influence, your liberty is on the line. OWI charges in Michigan carry stiff penalties, including the chance that you could lose your license and ability to drive. Jan Rubinstein of the Rubinstein Law Firm is ready to help you fight your charges and retain your rights.
Understanding the Penalties of OWI Accusations
If you are accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, do not assume that the charge and resulting penalties are minimal. Not only will you have to pay fines, and those fines are often higher than drivers think, but depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest and accusation, you may also have to spend some time in jail or give community service. In fact, if you are accused of being “Super Drunk” in Michigan, you could spend up to 180 days in jail. If you were involved in an accident, you could face felony charges on top of your OWI charges, which could lead to years in prison.
In addition to fines and jail time, a drunk driving conviction goes on your permanent record. This can make getting insurance and future employment more challenging. In reality, drunk driving charges have the potential to impact your life for a long time.
These penalties are not something to take lightly, yet many drivers assume they can do nothing to fight their drunk driving charges. If you have been accused of driving under the influence, a skilled drunk driving attorney can help you fight your case and build a strong defense, so your charges are either lessened or dismissed altogether.
