My boyfriend got an OWI… Now what?
Whether you just started dating or you’ve been together as long as you can remember, it’s hard to know what to do when your boyfriend gets arrested for drunk driving. Your SO could have his license revoked or suspended, do some jail time, lose his job, and have to pay tons of money in fines and legal fees—not to mention how embarrassing it will be when friends and family find out, or how it will affect your relationship.
Other sentencing items following your boyfriend’s first offense OWI conviction include:
- SR-22 insurance verification (when he is eligible to drive again)
- Installing an Ignition Interlock Device (depending on his BAC)
- Probation requirements including alcohol assessment and random testing
For the legal side of things, he needs help from experienced drunk driving lawyers.
That’s where Grieve Law comes in.
We offer free consultations to find out the circumstances of the arrest and determine the best course of action. Our OWI attorneys have a reputation for building strong defenses and getting charges reduced or eliminated, minimizing fines and jail time and controlling the damage as much as possible.
You Are Only Guilty If You Are Convicted®
As for whether you dump him or stay or have him spend some time in the doghouse—that’s entirely up to you.
