When Is Drunk Driving Considered A Felony?
In Michigan, you may be charged with an operating while intoxicated (OWI) felony if you’re convicted of a third drunk driving offense. You may also get a felony drunk driving charge if you caused injury, property damage or had a child in the vehicle while driving drunk.
There are harsher penalties for a driving under the influence (DUI) felony – most notably, a potential prison sentence. You need an experienced lawyer to provide you effective felony drunk driving defense.
In addition to prison time, a felony conviction can lead to other life-changing consequences. If you have a felony on your record, you may have difficulty dealing with the following:
- Obtaining employment
- Applying for loans
- Expunging your conviction
- Restoring your driving privileges
