Get Your Life Back Finally with OWI Expungement

board-certified criminal trial attorney

The consequences of a criminal conviction, including an OWI misdemeanor, can be both long-lasting and life-altering. Even a “traffic” offense like DUI/OWI can result in loss of employment or inability to find a job; weapon permit prohibition; inability to travel to certain countries, including Canada; and—of course—public embarrassment. For people who have been convicted of misdemeanor offenses such as OWI, there’s an obvious need to remove that record once they’ve paid their debt to society.  Now Michigan will finally permit expungement of a first-offense OWI conviction. 

Find out what this could mean for you in getting your life back! Learn more!

If you or a loved one has been convicted of an OWI in Washtenaw County or Southeastern Michigan, and you want to discuss options on how to expunge that conviction, please call or email Dan, a board-certified criminal trial attorney, and his team 24/7 at (734) 263-2780.

New Legislation Coming to Michigan Could Reduce Jail Sentences that Involve Driving with a Suspended License

DUI Attorney Ann Arbor

Due to the Michigan Joint Task Force’s findings, Michigan implemented legislation (effective October 2021) to reduce jail sentences that involve driving with a suspended license, and
ultimately help keep offenders from losing employment. These new laws will not only eliminate license suspensions as a punishment for vehicle code violations (unless they’re related to driving safety), but will eliminate license suspensions for selling or purchasing alcohol to minors, having a controlled substance, or failing to appear in court on a civil infraction. This new legislation also opts Michigan out of the federal requirement for license suspension upon a drug conviction. Effective October 2021, this means a person will no longer faces license suspension for drug possession charges.  

If your license has been suspended due to an offense that’s unrelated to driving safety, and have questions about how these new laws will affect you, please consider consulting Geherin Law Group in Ann Arbor.

Traffic Violations Could Mean Big Jail Time

DUI Attorney Ann Arbor

Some traffic violations are civil infractions, like failing to stop or yield, while others are criminal and punishable by more than just fines. Criminal traffic offenses, excluding drunk driving offenses, account for six of the top ten most common charges. The Michigan Joint Task Force has
  reported that driving without a valid license was the third most common reason for jail admission in Michigan. Changes in procedures and penalties for traffic violations are coming to Michigan!

“Will My Criminal Traffic Violation Be Expunged?”

Criminal Defense Attorney Ann Arbor

Criminal traffic violations go on both your driving and criminal records, and most cannot be expunged. Criminal traffic misdemeanors also vary in punishment. If you’re charged with a misdemeanor, you’ll likely pay a fine, lose your driver’s license, be put on probation, or in some cases, go to jail. You might be charged with a criminal traffic violation and be unaware because you weren’t arrested or taken to jail. Instead, the police officer may have just written you a citation, similar to a speeding ticket.

A felony traffic violation is an offense that’s punishable by a minimum of one year in prison. Most felony traffic offenses are punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison, with a fine of $500 to $5,000, or both. Typically, an individual is charged with a felony traffic violation after a third or subsequent DUI/OWI, or when a serious bodily injury or death results.  


Criminal traffic violations also have varying degrees of penalty points on your master driving record. Learn more here!
