A Staunch Defense For OWIs/DUIs In Indiana

A DUI charge can have harsh penalties for any driver who receives one. Indiana drivers, however, can expect to face even harsher consequences compared to drivers in surrounding states.

Indiana refers to drunk driving charges as OWIs (Operating A Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated). At The Law Office of Marvin Knorr & Associates, we fight for Indiana drivers to help them maintain their freedom, keep their license and avoid steep fees and penalties. When facing strict DUI laws and aggressive prosecutors, it is crucial to work with a proven trial attorney to protect your rights. If you are facing an OWI charge in Indiana, contact our office online or call 859-495-1857 to schedule a consultation.

Indiana DUIs Can Have Serious Consequences

An OWI conviction in Indiana can have far-reaching penalties, even if it is your first offense. These penalties can increase dramatically if your BAC is over 0.15%, if you have minors in your vehicle or if you cause injury to others. Drivers under the age of 21 also face different penalties, as well as a lower BAC limit of 0.02%.

Indiana First-Time OWI Penalties:

  • Up to $5,000 in fines
  • Up to one year in jail
  • Potential license suspension (up to two years)
  • Other penalties such as community service, participation in a victim impact panel, drug testing and installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

Indiana Second OWI Penalties:

  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Up to three years in jail
  • License suspension of up to two years
  • Community service with probation
  • Other terms such as substance abuse treatment, participation in a victim impact panel, drug testing and installation of an IID

A third OWI charge comes with even more severe consequences. As a habitual offender, you could lose your license for up to 10 years, in addition to other penalties such as high fines and jail time.
