DWI or DUI Charges

In Indiana, there are two basic OWI or DUI charges. One is simply operating while intoxicated (OWI), while the other is operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content in excess of the legal limit (.08%). Any drinking and driving offense in Indiana begins with those two basic offenses and our Elkhart DUI attorneys can help you distinguish between the two.

License Suspension in Indiana

One of the most important aspects of OWI/DUI cases surrounds a driver’s license suspension. In most misdemeanor cases, the license suspension can last anywhere from 90 days to 2 years. Despite that, in the right circumstances, a license suspension can be shortened to as little as 30 days, or none at all! Contact our Goshen Indiana DUI attorneys right away to find out if that is a possibility for you.


On the other hand, the license suspension for felony OWI/ DUI cases typically run from one to two years. However, there’s one law that change that license suspension so that it runs for 10 years! Speak with our experienced criminal defense attorney at Wilson & Kinsman LLC to make sure this does not happen to you.

Possible Jail Time

As with all criminal offenses, the first question everyone asks is: “Will I go to jail?”

To begin with, the maximum jail time you face for a misdemeanor OWI/DUI offense is one year. It can be less than that, and in most circumstances, that time is all suspendible. In felony OWI cases, the possible jail time is even longer. To protect against having to spend time in jail, contact Wilson & Kinsman LLC right away. We will bring all our experience and knowledge to work to achieve the lightest sentence possible in your situation!

Honest and professional

I was charged with an OWI in Elkhart County and Eric was my first call. He was very helpful and personable throughout the entire process. I certainly appreciated his honesty and professionalism. Eric is definitely well experienced in handling these matters. Thanks to his help and guidance, we were able to have all of our necessary steps done before going to court that helped to retain driving privileges. The judge even remarked at how well the case had been managed during the hearing. With Eric’s help, I was able to obtain specialized driving privileges very promptly. I am still able to tend to my life’s responsibilities and my work. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone else needing help with OWI/DUI charges.
