No Jail For A Woman Charged With Driving Under OWI Suspension A Second Time

Mar 25, 2016, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, OWI

In Michigan, the penalties increase significantly if you are caught driving while your license is suspended for a previous OWI offense. These penalties can escalate even further if someone is found driving under an OWI suspension more than once. Recently, this was the situation a 31-year-old woman working as a CNA found herself in, while in the Port Huron area. If convicted of driving under OWI suspension for the second time, she’d face up to a year in jail, a stiff fine, and an even longer license suspension period. Looking for strong legal representation to handle these serious charges, she contacted the attorneys at the Davis Law Group.

Attorney Maurice Davis began working with the client and strategically negotiated with all those involved with handling the case. After discussions, attorney Davis arranged for his client to plead to a first offense of driving under an OWI suspension rather than the second offense. This included a monetary fine, but she avoided probation or a jail sentence, which was the ultimate goal, given the circumstances of his case.

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.
