Hiring an Experienced OUI Lawyer in West Bloomfield Michigan To Defend You?

An OUI conviction causes some of the strictest legal penalties in Michigan.  This is true even for someone without a prior OUI conviction.  With OUI felony accusations the stakes are much higher.  A felony OUI conviction will lead to  incarceration in either jail or prison.  If the Judge sentences you to jail for OUI 3rd Offense you will also receive probation.   Probation will include counseling and testing for alcohol and substance issues, many hours of community service, fines and costs, and other probationary conditions at the discretion of the Judge. Violating the conditions of a felony OUI probation can send you to prison.  The maximum sentence for felony OUI  is 5 years in prison, unless habitual sentencing applies. The minimum possible sentence for felony OUI is 30 days in jail (which cannot be served on tether or otherwise suspended) or 1 year in prison.  

Misdemeanor OUI convictions can also result in very demanding sentences. For a misdemeanor OUI sentencing, the Judge  has the ability to order jail and up to 2 years of probation with strict probationary conditions.  A common result for probation violation is jail.

If convicted of OUI, the Secretary of State will take action against your driving privileges. Depending upon the nature of your conviction and prior history of OUIs,  you will incur a restriction, suspension, and/or revocation of your driving privileges.   Retaining a OUI attorney with experience is critical to obtaining a great result.
