Sentencing for Drinking and Driving
The potential penalties for a DUI in Michigan fall into three categories: judicial sanctions, driver's license sanctions and collateral consequences. Judicial sanctions are punishments imposed by the court and a judge is required to tailor the penalties to the individual offender. Judicial sanctions can include probation, jail, fines and vehicle immobilization.
Driver's license sanctions are given by the Secretary of State and are standardized. The only consideration is whether or not you have multiple DUIs or prior convictions on your record within the last 7-10 years.
Collateral consequences can be some of the most serious, such as insurance hikes, difficulty finding a job, revocation of certain permits and limitations to your travel. A knowledgeable attorney will be able to explain all of the possible sentences for a DUI conviction.
