Michigan Minor BAC Zero Tolerance OWI

If you are a minor charged with Minor BAC or Zero Tolerance OWI . . .

I can help! My name is William Maze, and I am one of Michigan's most widely recognized DUI attorneys (technically known as an OWI charge in Michigan or operating while intoxicated). I have 20 years of experience fighting Michigan DUI charges. I have fought more Michigan drunk driving charges than any other lawyer in the State of Michigan. I focus on discovering evidence that will help you beat a Michigan DUI charge, motions that will cripple the prosecutor's case against you, and taking cases to trial before a jury. I have been an active member of the National College for DUI Defense since 2005, and I have learned the science and strategies that you need in your corner fighting a Michigan DUI charge. A Michigan drunk driving charge is serious, and your immediate concern should be how to select the right DUI lawyer for your case.

Under Age 21 Operating With Any Bodily Alcohol Content / Zero Tolerance means having a BAC of 0.02 to 0.07, or any presence of alcohol in the driver's body other than alcohol that is consumed at a generally recognized religious ceremony. The court penalties for a minor bac / zero tolerance violation are not that severe, but you need to understand that this is very serious. With a zero tolerance conviction, you cannot be jailed over a first offense, but a conviction counts as a drunk driving conviction. This means that, as you turn 21 years of age, you must be extremely careful to avoid a possible OWI charge because the Minor BAC charge can be used to enhance a second drunk driving to OWI 2nd. An OWI 2nd results in a lifetime driver's license revocation if the conviction occurs within 7 years of the prior conviction. Likewise, a Minor BAC conviction can be used to enhance a third offense any time in a lifetime to support enhancement to an OWI 3rd felony charge. (Only one Minor BAC conviction can be used for enhancement purposes towards a felony OWI 3rd.) If you are charged with a Minor BAC Zero Tolerance crime, you face the following penalties:

I can help you try to avoid the consequences of a Minor BAC / Zero Tolerance. Because this carries significant penalties as a drunk driving offense, you want to treat this charge very seriously. A conviction can have a lasting impact on your professional and personal life.
