Wisconsin’s new drunk driving laws have significantly toughened penalties for being convicted of OWI (operating while intoxicated), even if it is your first time.
For example, the penalties for 1st Offense OWI with a child under the age of 16 in the vehicle is the same as 2nd Offense OWI.
It also, for the first time, criminalizes OWI for underage drivers if there is a child under the age of 16 in the vehicle as well.
And anyone convicted of OWI with a PAC of .15 or higher, or anyone who refuses to take a breathalyzer, must now have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle for at least one year.
If you have received a drunk driving citation — even if it’s your first offense — you must respond within 10 days of the offense- you do not have until the court appearance date to respond.
Important legal decisions need to be made within days of your arrest. There can be huge ramifications for not acting in a timely manner and can possibly save your license- preventing a loss of job and thousands of dollars in new auto insurance payments.
