OWI Charges Reduced in Oakland County

Mar 13, 2017, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, OWI

The state of Michigan punishes OWI offenses very seriously, and this is particularly true in areas like Oakland County, where OWI charges are rarely reduced. In these parts of Michigan, you are usually only given the option to plea to the OWI charge or prepare for a trial. However, if you are faced with the harsh penalties for driving under the influence, a highly-skilled Michigan OWI defense lawyer may be your best option to achieve a positive result.

For example, a retired man from Pontiac was recently pulled over on his way to pick up his wife’s medication and a breath test showed a BAC of .11. With no prior criminal history, the man knew that Oakland County’s strict guidelines were against him, but he decided to consult with Davis Law Group and experienced DUI attorney Maurice Davis.

By aggressively representing his client, attorney Davis accentuated the man’s lack of criminal history and successfully argued to amend the OWI to operating a vehicle while visibly impaired. Achieving a reduction in such a typically rigid jurisdiction allowed his client to get restricted driving privileges, saved him a significant amount of fees, and resulted in fewer points on his license.

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.
