No previous convictions. Clean record.

Unfortunately, the OWI will stay on your record forever under the Michigan Traffic Code. Three OWI convictions in a lifetime is a felony. I personally don't like that law. It seems unfair when a person gets couple of these at a young age, then picks up another as a senior citizen and is charged with a felony.

Yes. I will remain on your record permanently. Whether it will be available to the public is a different question. After 10 years, it will not appear on your public SOS record. If it was a 90 vs. a 93 day offense, it may or may not appear on your public record.
