Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated

The Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated (O.M.V.W.I.) program, is an offender deferred prosecution program, which began in 1976. Upon successful completion of this program, the OMVWI offense is dismissed by the Prosecutor.

O.M.V.W.I Program

  • This program is one-year in length. 
  • The defendant is required to undergo a substance abuse assessment and to complete the recommended education, counseling or treatment and aftercare. 
  • The fee is $250.00 for this program
  • Defendant must also pay the $200.00 State deferral fee. 
Upon successful completion of this program, the OMVWI offense is dismissed by the Prosecutor.  There is always a record of the arrest, but there is no conviction and therefore no penalties, such as fines or jail time.
However, in Indiana, the driver will lose driving privileges for a minimum of 30 days, even without a conviction.
