An OWI Charge In Michigan
You may have heard of a DUI or drunk driving charge. In Michigan, it is referred to as an “OWI” or “Operating While Intoxicated.” The legal blood alcohol content limit in Michigan is .08%. If you are pulled over and found to have a blood alcohol content at or higher than this, then the officer will charge you with an OWI. Even just a first-time OWI conviction can mean jail time, fines and a license suspension.
An even more serious charge is an OWI with a BAC over .17%. The penalties go up and there is a mandatory alcohol treatment program if convicted. There is a lot at stake if you are facing an OWI charge in Michigan. This is the time to make sure you hire an aggressive and seasoned defense attorney who can seek the best possible result for your individual case.
