Penalties for First-Time OWI

Similar to all states, Michigan has established legal limits for alcohol consumption and operating a vehicle. For drivers over the age of 21, the BAC limit is .08. This means that a motorist who is found to be driving with a BAC of .08 or higher may be charged with an OWI.

A first-time OWI in Michigan is a misdemeanor, punishable by the following:

  • A maximum jail sentence of 93 days
  • Fines of up to $500
  • Up to 360 hours of community service
  • License suspension for up to six months
  • Possible ignition interlock
  • Six points added to driver record

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • Thank you again to this amazing team!

    “Mr White and his team are absolutely amazing!!! I would come back for their legal services again and again! They are kind, caring, and professional. They saved my husband from being wrongly convicted and saved our family from so much stress and turmoil that we thought we could never get through!!!! Thank you again to this amazing team! Even though I don't think I could ever thank them enough for everything they have done for us and our family!”

  • Thank you for your assistance!!!

    “Without hesitation I greatly respect and thank Whites law office LCC for their prompt attention into two separate matters that needed prompt attention. Which were both resolved to my satisfaction. I highly recommend White's law office as I always have. Thank you for your assistance!!!”

  • I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead.

    “My experience with White Law was awesome and I am definitely going to hire Jamie for my son’s case. Jamie did exactly what he said he was going to do and I appreciate that. I had a previous attorney from a different firm that didn’t do what I wanted him to do. It was frustrating. Jamie was great because he always left it up to me to decide. He would give me all my options and then let me make an informed decision. That’s what attorneys are supposed to do. You pay them money to help you out, not force you into deals. I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead – and that’s what is most important to me. I would recommend Jamie and his firm to anyone.”

  • I've now used this firm 3 times and they have exceeded my expectations every time.

    “Excellent staff that you can tell really cares about you and your needs. I've now used this firm 3 times and they have exceeded my expectations every time. I don't ever leave reviews but this firm deserves my time to leave one, thank you all for everything you've done for me and my family!!”

  • I definitely would recommend Mr White and his team to anyone who needs assistance.
