Drunk Driving

Your freedom depends on the right defense.
Home > Criminal Law > Drunk Driving

In Wisconsin, drunk driving is legally referred to as “operating under influence of intoxicant or other drug”, or OWI. These laws not only govern the operation of cars, motorcycles, and trucks; all motorized vehicles are covered (such as golf carts, snowmobiles, boats, etc.).

The Prohibited Alcohol Concentration (PAC) in Wisconsin is .08%. This means that a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher is evidence of intoxication, regardless of your field sobriety testing performance.

The penalties for OWI vary based on the number of previous OWI convictions, your BAC, and if a child 15 years or younger was in the vehicle. Penalties include:

Jail

Fines

Suspended license

Ignition block device

If you’ve been charged with OWI, you need a knowledgeable attorney to defend you and protect your future.
