I am an attorney in Illinois, and have a client charged with an enhanced DUI in Illinois. The basis for the enhanced charge are Michigan charges, which include Driving While Impaired by Liquor in 1997. I looked at the Michigan Statute, which appears to indicate that this is not equivalent to an Illinois DUI which is punishable by 365 in jail. The Michigan charge is only punishable by 90 days. What is the difference of the charges? Would the Michigan DWI be equivalent to an Illinois DUI?
