Causing Death or Serious Injury
An individual may also face felony allegations if they cause serious injury or death to another while:
- Operating while intoxicated (OWI)
- Operating while visibly impaired (OWVI)
- Operating with any presence of drugs (OWOD)
Michigan enforces crippling criminal penalties for these charges. Causing death can result in up to 15 years imprisonment, a fine up to $10,000, or both. Causing injury is punishable by imprisonment for up to 5 years and a fine of up to $5,000. If an emergency responder (EMT, law enforcement office) was harmed or killed as the result of an OWI, terms of imprisonment can increase to a maximum of 20 years.
No matter which felony OWI charges you or your loved one may face, the time to act is now. By taking preemptive measures and bringing your case to the attention of my firm, I can immediately set to conducting investigations and preparing your case.
