Don’t walk into your case blind. Understand the potential consequences for first-, second- and third-time OWIs ahead of time:

  • A first-time offense is considered a 93-day misdemeanor if your blood-alcohol level (BAC) was above the legal limit of 0.08 but below 0.17.
  • If it’s your first offense, but your BAC was over 0.17, you could be charged with a 180-day misdemeanor. This is sometimes called the "super-drunk" law.
  • A second offense is considered a one-year misdemeanor and comes with a five-day minimum and one-year maximum jail sentence.
  • A third offence is a five-year felony with a one-year minimum jail sentence.

The sentences can be higher if there was a minor in the vehicle or physical harm occurred. Learn more by speaking with an experienced OWI attorney in Grand Rapids, MI about your case. Call 616-822-5078 today to set up a consultation with the Kolehouse Law Office.
