    (3) A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor. As part of the sentence, the person may be ordered to perform community service and undergo substance abuse screening and assessment at his or her own expense as described in section 703(1) of the Michigan liquor control code of 1998, 1998 PA 58, MCL 436.1703. A court shall not accept a plea of guilty or nolo contendere for a violation of this section from a person charged solely with a violation of section 625(6).

    The above is part of the law you are charged with.

    Call the state DMV and ask them if you will also lose your license.

    Don't worry about it you won't lose your liscense you only lose your liscense when driving is involved... I wouldn't worry about that its just gonna be a couple hundred dollar fine and an alcohol assement thats it. Just like the cop said.
