If you receive a DUI for the first time, there are probably many thoughts and worries that go through your head about how it will affect your life. One of your biggest concerns is probably "Will I go to jail for this?"
If you are convicted of a first offense, misdemeanor DUI in Washtenaw county, Michigan, you may be sentenced to probation in lieu of serving jail time. I have found that most judges in Washtenaw county are most concerned with imposing sentences designed to help you avoid future DUI arrests and convictions. Judges in other Michigan counties may sentence you to jail time, even if it is your first DUI conviction.
