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.
