Wisconsin Supreme Court clarifies drunk driving law


Drunk driving charges are serious, regardless of whether a person has faced similar allegations in the past. Though critics of Wisconsin's first time DUI offense penalty of a civil ticket state that a ticket is too lenient for the crime of drunk driving, the costs and hardships of facing DUI charges can affect a person for a long time. Individuals facing multiple subsequent DUIs have always faced tougher penalties than first time offenders, and a recent decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court provides some clarity on how some alleged offenders will be punished for engaging in multiple DUI crimes.

Alleged case of drunk driving leads to homicide charges


Whether a Wisconsin resident is facing his first drunk driving charge or his fifth, that individual is entitled to exercise his rights, even when he is a suspect. Those rights include employing the assistance of a legal adviser, who can help the individual prepare himself for the challenging process of defending himself in court. It is up to the discretion of the individual to choose if he will work with a lawyer, but the variety of drunk driving-related charges that a person can face each pose different consequences that could impact his life.

Man faces third drunk driving offense


Just as Wisconsin drivers can face drunk driving charges while traveling out of state, non-Wisconsin residents can also face similar charges while driving through the Badger State. During holidays and other periods of peak travel, motorists can find themselves facing criminal charges for allegedly operating their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. When local or out-of-state drivers find themselves facing Wisconsin DUI charges they sometimes seek the counsel of Wisconsin DUI defense lawyers.

Police officer arrested for DWI and breath test refusal


Drivers in Sheboygan who are stopped by law enforcement on suspicion of DWI might not be aware of the law of implied consent, which says they are required to submit to a breath test if asked to do so. Even if no alcohol has been consumed or the driver has not surpassed the legal amount, there can still be charges filed for breath test refusal. Committing test refusal carries with it penalties and the law applies to everyone including public officials and members of law enforcement.
