Wisconsin man faces charges for drunk driving accident

Driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance is a serious offense. It can lead to injuries, charges being filed, the loss of a driver's license and possible incarceration. The seriousness can be compounded if anyone is injured or killed as the result of drunk driving. Anyone facing such charges should seek the best possible defense and educate themselves about the evidence being presented against them.

A 28-year-old Marinette County man is facing drunk driving charges related to a head-on collision that killed a 13-year-old boy and seriously injured three other members of the boy's family.

The accident occurred earlier this month on Highway 141 in the town of Middle Inlet. Authorities have stated that the 28-year-old's pickup truck struck a car in which the 13-year-old was a passenger. The 13-year-old's 44-year-old mother, who was driving the vehicle, and his sisters, ages 16 and 17, were all severely injured.

According to authorities, the 28-year-old's blood alcohol level was 0.262 approximately two hours after the accident occurred. That is in excess of three times the legal level for drivers in the state. He is facing eight charges stemming from the accident. Police also gave him repeat offender status. In order to receive this designation, a person must have a prior conviction for an alcohol-related offense.

The defendant's next court appearance is on Nov. 1, when a judge will determine if enough evidence exists to schedule a trial. Before defendants appear in court, it is in their best interests to educate themselves on the possible outcomes and penalties for DUI, so they can mount the best possible defense.
