Second DUI/OWI Over Three Decades of Fighting For Your Freedom

Second OWI Offense in Oakland County

Get Experienced Legal Counsel From Our DUI Defense Attorneys

A first-time DUI/OWI in Michigan carries harsh penalties such as fines, driver’s license suspension, and jail time. Since the court assumes you learned your lesson after the first offense, a second offense is associated with more severe consequences.

If you have been arrested for a second OWI in Oakland County, our legal team at Fraiberg & Pernie understands what it takes to reduce your charges or get your case dismissed altogether. We can investigate your case, gather evidence, find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, and obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

What are the Penalties for a Second OWI & OWVI in Michigan?

A conviction for a second OWI or OWVI is punishable by a jail sentence of up to one year, a maximum fine of $1,000, or a possible driver’s license revocation. Under some circumstances, a person may be qualified for a restricted driver’s license (with the use of an ignition interlock device) once he/she serves 45 days of license revocation.

If an underage driver (under 21 years of age) is convicted of a second Zero Tolerance law offense, he/he faces a jail sentence of up to 90 days, up to 60 days of community service, and expensive fines. Other consequences of a second OWI offense include an increase in auto, health, and life insurance premiums.
