Woman facing felony drunk driving charges in Wisconsin

The consequences for a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol are severe, perhaps especially if additional charges are included. When an accident occurs, or if a minor is present at the time, those accused of drunk driving often face stiffer penalties. A woman was arrested and is facing similar charges after she allegedly hit a police cruiser in Wisconsin recently.

The accident is said to have occurred late at night on a recent Saturday when the woman was traveling home from a wedding reception with her husband and their 1-year-old child. According to authorities, she was merging onto Interstate 41 when she suddenly slammed into a police officer who was apparently standing near his vehicle. Police say the emergency lights on the cruiser were on at the time, and the officer suffered critical injuries in the process.

Police assert that a breath test indicated her blood alcohol content to be .125, which is above the legal limit for operating a vehicle. They also say that she admitted to having drinks at the reception before driving. She is reportedly facing felony charges in relation to the incident, including DUI causing injury and DUI with a minor in the vehicle.

When staring down drunk driving charges of this nature, a person might find it advisable to seek guidance in the initial stages of the process. By speaking with a defense attorney, a client in Wisconsin could obtain advice on the potential outcomes he or she may face, as well as assistance in forming a strong defense for the road ahead. If a conviction is unavoidable, an attorney can assist in pursing a lesser sentence during legal proceedings.
