In Wisconsin, is it illegal for a person to operate a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) by drugs or alcohol. This include driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher, while under the influence of any substance that impairs driving ability, or with any restricted controlled substances that can be detected in blood.
Criminal penalties for DUI/OWI vary depending on the number of prior offenses, and may include the revocation of your license, fines, jail time and mandatory community service. In addition, you will be required to undergo a mandatory drug and alcohol evaluation. Drivers under 21 years old who are caught driving with a BAC greater than .0% but less than .08% face a three-month license suspension and $200 fine.
Though it is unlikely that your OWI/DUI case will be completely dismissed, Wisconsin law allows for OWI charges to be reduced. In some cases, judges may issue hardship licenses for travel related to work, school, or treatment purposes.
If you have been charged with OWI/DUI in Janesville, WI, call our office today for a consultation. Together, we will look at the facts of your case and determine the best strategy for your defense.

However, this often leads to increased insurance premiums and points on an otherwise stellar driving record, putting them at risk of losing their license if future traffic violations are committed.
