Driving under the influence is a serious issue in the state of Wisconsin. This affects not only the person driving while impaired, but also innocent people on our roadways. The below subjects are repeat OWI offenders arrested or sentenced in December 2018.

What is Operating while Intoxicated in Wisconsin? 
-If you are over the age of 21, law defines the following four items as driving while intoxicated:
Driving with BAC (blood alcohol content) of 0.08% or higher
Driving while under the influence of an intoxicant, including alcohol, legal prescription medications, illegal/controlled drugs, or other chemical substances.
Driving with a detectable amount of any controlled substance in the blood stream.
Driving while under the influence of a controlled substance or any other drug.
Refusal To Test
If you are placed under arrest and refuse to give a blood or breath sample when asked, you can incur additional penalties - losing driver's license, possible jail time, and monetary fines.

First Offense OWI Penalties
Fine between $150 and $300
OWI Surcharge of $365
License suspension of 6 to 9 months, able to obtain occupational license
Assessment of alcohol and/or drug use
Ignition Interlock Device depending on blood-alcohol content level

Subsequent Convictions
First conviction penalties are geared toward educating the person and changing their habits. Second and subsequent offenses do not have the same leniency. Fines, license suspensions, and driving record points increase for each additional conviction - and include mandatory jail time.

Ignition Interlock Devices (IID)
Ignition interlock devices are mandatory for a minimum of 1 year in the following situations:
More than one OWI
Refusing a blood or breathalyzer test
First offenses with BAC of 0.15% or higher
