High-Level OWI Reduced for Man in Gross PointOct 12, 2016, by Case Results, Criminal Defense, OWI in
The skilled Michigan OWI attorney Maurice Davis recently defended a 30-year-old engineer from Gross Point, when a minor car accident ended with him being charged with a high-level OWI. Because a chemical test determined his BAC was .33, which is well above the legal limit, this man now faced drastically increased penalties, when compared to a typical OWI. These included higher fines, possible time in jail, a lengthy license suspension, and the requirement to install an interlock device when he did become eligible for a restricted license. While all of these possible repercussions weighed heavily on him, losing his license for any extended period would also likely result in being dismissed from his job. Therefore, in an effort to find a more favorable outcome and hopefully save his career, he hired Davis Law Group.
Attorney Davis initially met with the prosecution on this man’s behalf; however, based on his client’s high BAC, the prosecutor was initially hesitant to negotiate. Undaunted, attorney Davis began building the strongest possible defense for his client and continued negotiations. This passionate advocacy proved effective and the prosecution relented, agreeing to amend the high-level OWI to the lesser offense of driving while visually impaired, which only included a 90-day restricted license. The client was very pleased with this drastic reduction, which removed his fears about being able to drive to work and ultimately saved his job.
