Firefighter’s OWI Reduced to Reckless Driving

May 14, 2015, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, OWI

We recently represented a 24-year-old firefighter charged with a Michigan OWI. In Michigan, operating while intoxicated is a serious criminal traffic offense; if convicted, the man may have faced up to 93 days in jail, a fine of up to $500, 30 days of suspended driving privileges, and up to six months with limited driving privileges.

The young man hired the Michigan OWI attorneys at Davis Law Group PLLC to handle his case. He was worried about his job, since an OWI conviction would mean losing his position with the Fire Department. Furthermore, an OWI conviction would make him ineligible for further public service within any state or county emergency services department in Michigan. (Other consequences for OWI convictions can be found here.

Davis Law Group PLLC was able to successfully negotiate a reduction in his Michigan OWI charge to misdemeanor reckless driving, a traffic offense that would not impact our client’s employment status.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
