Navigating the criminal justice system can be a complex and intimidating process. Without the necessary legal experience, those who face criminal charges may feel somewhat overwhelmed by the process and in need of guidance. A 26-year-old man is reportedly in custody after being accused of drunk driving on three separate occasions within the past 30 days in Wisconsin.
According to reports, the first incident took place after authorities claimed to have encountered a vehicle that was drifting in and out of the lanes of traffic. The driver of this car was reportedly arrested shortly thereafter on suspicion of driving under the influence. Nearly three weeks later, police say they pulled the same man over and arrested him for drunk driving after spotting him operating a vehicle in the wrong lane of traffic.
On a recent Wednesday morning, the man was once again involved in a traffic stop. During this incident, authorities claim to have recognized him from previous incidents and assert that he appeared to be exhibiting signs of impairment. A traffic stop ensued and he was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of impairment.
Facing multiple drunk driving charges within a short period of time can be a daunting experience. Those who encounter a similar situation could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible for guidance in understanding the potential consequences they might face and advice on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client in Wisconsin and assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable during court proceedings.
