My daughter got an OWI… Now what?
If your daughter gets arrested for underage drinking and driving, even if it's her first offense OWI, she’s facing a fine of $200, 3-month suspension of her license, and 4 driver’s license demerit points. If someone under 16 was in the car with her, the fine and suspension double. On a scale of annoyed to outraged, you’re sitting somewhere right around furious (with some disappointed and embarrassed mixed in). You’re not sure what to do next or what the consequences will be long-term.
Other sentencing items following your daughter’s DUI conviction include:
- SR-22 insurance verification (when she is eligible to drive again)
- Installing an Ignition Interlock Device (depending on her BAC)
- Probation requirements including alcohol assessment and random testing
Whether this is your child’s first OWI or she’s a repeat offender, she needs the best representation she can get to ensure the best outcome.
