A repeat OWI offense or DUI 2nd offense can seem earth-shattering and devastating. There are numerous consequences and ramifications that come from this offense. However, with proper legal representation, the problems can be eliminated or, at the very least, minimized. A DUI 2nd offense is a serious offense that carries a mandatory minimum of five (5) days in jail. It carries substantial penalties, including jail for up to one year, substantial fines and costs, lengthy probation with strict conditions, therapy, support group meetings, and many more. There are other consequences that will affect you. For instance, the Michigan Department of State will revoke your driver’s license for at least one year. No hardship, work, or school exceptions exist for that one year. There are also possible employment issues, and you can expect a substantial increase in your automobile insurance premiums if you are not canceled altogether.
