Penalties for Moving Violation Causing Serious Impairment of a Body Function

This is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of 93 days in jail and/or a $500 fine. You also face severe consequences for your driver's license, including a one-year mandatory driver's license suspension and six points assessed to your driving record. Additionally, the Secretary of State will impose a $1,000 driver responsibility fee upon you for two years.

The burden of proof will remain on the prosecution. If your case goes to trial, the prosecutor must prove the following elements:
