10 Questions Answered
Q. One more question: What is the difference between Ordinance OWI and Statute OWI. Thank you for your information.
A: An ordinance violation is charged under local ordinance (e.g. - city, township or village ordinance). Statutory law refers to Michigan state statutory laws (Michigan Compiled Laws). The substance of a local OWI ordinance is generally the same as state law. The primary difference is local ordinance OWI is prosecuted by the city, township or village attorney while state law is prosecuted by the county prosecutor. All felony OWI prosecutions are handled by county prosecutors.
Q. How can I find out if an arrest warrant has been issued to me if I am in another state?
A: Some courts have their register of action online at

If you can't find it online, you can also try calling the district court where the offense allegedly occurred.
Q. Could I face jail time for malicious destruction of property if it is listed as $200- $1000 and i have a clean record?
A: it is a misdemeanor criminal charge, so yes you could go to jail. That doesn’t mean you will go to jail. The facts of the case, the judge, the advocacy of your attorney and your background are all variables that can impact the type of sentence you will receive.
