Drunk driving is a serious crime, and like most states, Wisconsin laws bring steep penalties for individuals who choose to drink and drive. You may know that if convicted, a DUI or OWI can result in loss of driving privileges, time behind bars and more. However, that is not all you need to know about this type of criminal offense and its associated penalties.
Many people believe that it is a futile effort to fight a DUI or OWI, but that is not the case. In fact, it is possible to effectively confront these charges and possibly mitigate or avoid some penalties. A strong criminal defense begins by reaching out to an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible after an arrest.
