Second OWI in Michigan

Call (517) 316-1195 for Experienced & Knowledgeable Legal Counsel

No one ever thinks they will be in the same position they swore they would never find themselves again. Unfortunately, we all make mistakes—even the same ones. A second OWI arrest means you will face even more severe penalties compared to the first time around.

At White Law PLLC, our Okemos criminal defense attorney can help you navigate the additional complexities that accompany a repeat offense and guide you through the criminal justice process to get the results you want. Let us develop a strong and personalized defense strategy to either get your entire case dismissed or your charges reduced.

Penalties for Repeat OWI Offenders

Legally speaking, a second OWI offense means a second alcohol-related driving offense within seven years. If a prior conviction was even one day more than seven years before the most recent OWI arrest, then it cannot be prosecuted as a second offense.

The following are the potential penalties for a second-time OWI in Michigan:

  • Maximum jail sentence of one year (with a mandatory minimum of five days)
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • License suspension of up to five years (with a minimum of one year)
  • Up to 90 days of community service
  • License plate confiscation
  • Possible vehicle forfeiture
  • Six points on the driving record
  • $1,000 Driving Responsibility Fee for two consecutive years

Let Us Protect Your Rights & Future Immediately

Our Okemos criminal defense lawyers can thoroughly evaluate your case and determine all of your available options to get the most favorable outcome possible. We offer you our experienced legal support from start to finish.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • If it wasn't for Mr. White I would have been unjustly put in jail for a very long time.

    “People v. R.R. (2013) - "I was facing a serious criminal charge that I did not commit. I spoke with several other attorneys and all of them had a laid back attitude. I didn't need an attorney with a laid back attitude, I needed an attorney that would aggressively pursue my case and one that knows the law. I got referred to Jamie White of the White Law PLLC and I got exactly what I needed, an aggressive knowledgeable attorney. From our initial conversation to the day I was exonerated, Mr. White worked hard to prove my innocence. If it wasn't for Mr. White I would have been unjustly put in jail for a very long time. Thank you Mr. White." ”

  • White Law PLLC saved my family's lives

    “My wife and I were arrested in October of 2014 on drug manufacturing and gun possession charges because we were growing medical marijuana in our home. My wife was charged with five felony counts and I was charged with eight felony counts. We were both looking at 15 years. Jamie got both my wife's and my felony charges down to two and the gun charges dropped. The gun charges carried a two year mandatory prison sentence. In the end, my wife and I both got 18 month probation. Jamie and everyone in his office were so nice and answered all of our questions any time we called. I recommend Jamie White and White Law PLLC for any legal problems. They saved my family's lives.”
