Alcohol-related crimes in Michigan are taken very seriously by prosecuting attorneys and the court system and the charges vary. If you’re facing alcohol charges, you may be charged with anything from a DUI and OWI, to drunk and disorderly and Super Drunk. Much of this depends on what you were doing when police became involved and how much alcohol was consumed for you to have any alcohol charges.
Outside of court-related penalties, the perception from the greater public of some of these charges can be negative and harmful to your personal image – even when you only made a mistake. While the most common alcohol crimes are often misdemeanors, they can come with hefty penalties and unsuspecting life-altering consequences.
