Wisconsin man receives jail time for 8th DUI

There are millions of DUI arrests each year, and they can happen to anyone. We all make mistakes, and drunk driving convictions carry long-lasting consequences, including jail time, revocation of license and fines. In cases of repeat offenses, the consequences can be even worse, as one Wisconsin man is finding out.

A Wisconsin man recently received prison time for his eighth DUI conviction. The 56-year-old man was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to the drunk driving charge. He was allegedly driving with a revoked license in August when he was stopped by police. The police said they smelled alcohol in the vehicle, adding his speech was slurred and that his eyes were bloodshot.

The man allegedly confessed to drinking at least a 12-pack of beer, and his blood alcohol content registered at 0.26, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08. His most recent DUI convictions took place in 2008, 2006 and 2004.

Being arrested for a DUI can be a troubling time in one's life, but there are options. It's vital to know the law and all your rights regarding drunk driving charges. In a case such as this, it's apparent that the man may have a substance abuse problem. Will going to jail for three years do anything to cure him of his problem or would he have a better chance of playing a positive role in society if he were sent to a treatment facility?
