When a driver is accused of DUI / OWI, it often seems hopeless to fight the charge. But hiring the right OWI / DUI criminal defense lawyer can actually lead to DUI / OWI charges thrown out based on field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, blood tests or illegal traffic stops.
Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs (even legal or prescription medication) risk being arrested and charged with drunk or drugged driving. The penalties you face if convicted of driving while drunk, high or even medication impaired driving can range from a fine, a suspended or revoked driver’s license, alcohol counseling, time in prison or even the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID). These penalties can increase to a great extent if certain aggravating factors are present. The ramifications for a DUI/OWI conviction in Wisconsin can vary and the choice in your DUI / OWI criminal defense lawyer can make or break your final verdict.
One misconception is that a driver needs to be drunk or high to be arrested for a Driving Under the Influence or Operating While Intoxicated offense. However, an adult can be arrested for drunk driving, after having just a couple of drinks. Misunderstanding the different possibilities can lead to a criminal conviction, prison, or even losing your driving rights for a long period of time.
