Woman accused of DUI after allegedly speeding up to 100 mph

A traffic stop for excessive speeding is serious enough on its own. However, when additional charges are added on top of this accusation, the potential consequences could be significantly more severe, especially if it involves a DUI. A Wisconsin woman is likely focused on her criminal defense following a recent traffic stop under similar circumstances, in which she has been accused of driving under the influence.

A sheriff's deputy claims that just before midnight a vehicle flew past him at a high rate of speed on Interstate 43. He says he followed the vehicle until it came to a stop, asserting that the driver was moving as fast as 100 mph while exhibiting erratic behavior. Upon approaching the woman, she allegedly claimed to have consumed one beer prior to the incident, although a breath test allegedly showed her to be over the legal driving limit.

This would reportedly be her fourth DUI offense, the most recent of which apparently occurring 15 years prior. She is facing felony charges and, if convicted, would face up to six years behind bars. Individuals who face such potentially catastrophic outcomes often seek to protect their futures from being affected, but the process can be complex.

A person in Wisconsin who is accused of a DUI always has the right to obtain legal counsel in the early stages of the process. By speaking with a defense attorney before responding to the charges, a person might obtain invaluable guidance for the road ahead. By examining the charges and evidence against a client, an attorney can advise him or her of the potential consequences and assist in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable during court proceedings.
