Do you always go to jail on second DUI?
I recently got my second DUI. My bac came back as .12 and the reason I was pulled over was for a license plate light being out. I have two kids and one on the way. I am complying with all bail requirements (no driving, no alcohol, wcs, and I have driver sadtey course scheduled) I am really very worried seeing as my boys need me, but lots of places I've look says jail is mandatory...but how much? And could probation or higher fines be an option instead? Is there something I can do to help my case?
The statutory minimum amount of jail on an OWI 2nd is 5 days. In some counties, it's more like 30. I recommend...

It depends on the judge, the prosecutor, and your prior criminal history (not just for this offense). You want to get a...
I failed an IID breath test and could not start my vehicle. The IID is not court ordered. Will it affect my case.
I had the IID voluntarily installed to get familiar with it before the court ordered it. I have a DUI case pending. No plea has been entered, no sentence has beed imposed and the IID Lease agreement is not yet signed.
I would suggest to stay away from any alcohol or any substance that could prevent the equipment from working. Get the...
3rd OWI. Getting my probationary license, how hard is it to obtain?
As it's stated above, I have my 3rd OWI back in August of 2014. I know, I drastically messed up my life. I got out in November of 2014, as I entered the Alcohol Treatment Court program. I will graduate in a month. I'm doing very well, haven't messed up once. Where I live in Lannon, doesn't have public transit. I work in Milwaukee now, and my new schedule is making it very difficult to get rides from my wife like I used to and I can't carpool. I need a license for work. I went to the DMV website and it said that if the judge approved me getting my occupational, the DMV still would deny me. People have said to still try. But it's a pretty expensive try. I have everything I need in order to get it. SR-22, all the required classes done. What are my chances of getting it? What are my options?
This will depend on when your earlier OWI cases occurred. You can call the DMV and ask whether the website is current....
Is it common to request blood test chain of custody proof before pleading
I would like verification that blood test results are truely mine but all you get is a piece of paper, no evidence of chain of custody, training records or equipment calibration and maintenance.
No, it is not very common. The chain of custody usually includes the law enforcement officer who personally observed...
Has anyone witnessed 346.65(2)(bm) used in sentencing of a 2nd offense OWI.
Trying hard to fulfill all the requirements of 346.65(2)(bm) prior to plea and sentencing but am not very optimistic that all the proactive effort will pay off. Does probabtion and treatment absolutely have to be court ordered or can I voluntarily seek treatment prior to sentencing. I feel as though I am currently on probation as I am already being penalized financially, being forced to be on SCRAM bracelet and report to WCS bi-weekly, etc... All factors are primarily mitigating except for BAC level. 346.65(2)(bm) indicates it can be used once in a lifetime. Funny, because I can only be charged with an OWI (2nd) once in a life time. It would seem that now is the only time that it can be leveraged. Hopefull !
Many counties do not routinely place people on probation for a second offense OWI. A person can certainly obtain an "...
Why is "*Blood test taken with refusal" listed on page 2 as a mitigating factor In 3rd District Sentencing Guidlines pdf.
