OWI Charge Reduced To Reckless Driving For Woman in Livonia

Mar 30, 2016, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, OWI

In Livonia, MI a 25-year-old woman, working as a bartender was pulled over and after smelling alcohol, the police administered a breathalyzer test and when her BAC was found to be .08 they charged her with operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). The young woman with no prior criminal history was troubled by this OWI charge because she knew a conviction could result in possible jail time, costly fines, increased insurance premiums, license suspension, and an OWI offence on her record could seriously hinder her future career options; therefore, she sought the capable legal counsel of Michigan’s Davis Law Group for help navigating this process.

Attorney Maurice Davis did not want to see the young woman’s future jeopardized by this transgression and began working on her behalf. Attorney Davis was able to use his extensive experience to negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce the OWI charge to reckless driving. This reduction from the OWI charge substantially limited the consequences she faced, but perhaps most importantly spared her from a haunting OWI conviction.

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.
