Possibly longer jail sentences for drunk driving in Wisconsin

In the past this blog has addressed issues of sentencing and penalties for drunk driving charges. In the last year, the state has considered many changes that could impact how a person convicted of an alcohol related charge is punished. Recent action by the Wisconsin State Senate is moving some of those considerations forward.

In-car breathalyzer contributes to vehicle accident

In-vehicle breathalyzers and other ignition lock devices mandated by Wisconsin courts are meant to make convicted drunk drivers more responsible on the roads. An out-of-state car accident ironically shows that these paternalistic penalties can backfire and contribute to more harm than good.

Minor passengers can increase the severity of DUI charges

Anyone who has faced a DUI charge in Wisconsin understands how even a first offense can impact a person's life. From preparing a defense to appearing before a judge, the costs and stresses of getting through a DUI hearing can impose heavy burdens on the accused individual. If the person is convicted, he or she can lose important rights that influence what types of employment that person might be eligible to hold as well as other significant privileges.
