Is there any chance for a 3rd owi I can get on the scram bracelet?
I was recently pulled over for my 3rd owi in jefferson wi. Weird thing is the officer did not give me a sobriety test until we got back to the station. I was entially pulled over for speeding and being revoked and I'm pretty sure I wasn't read my rights. The sobriety test was recorded at the county jail garage where the officer said I failed right away and I don't kno how I did. I refused a breathe test and was taken to fort atkinson hospital for a blood test. I am the main provider in my household while my fiancée goes to school full time and works part time . We have 4 children in the house and serving huber will cost us to lose everything. My 2nd owi was in 2010.Please anyone let me know what I should do and go about this , I am going to get my own personal attorney. Thank you

Charged with DC in Dodge county WI & was on a $500 signature bond when with 4th dui in Jefferson.
While I was awaiting my court date in Dodge county for misdemeanor DC on a $500 signature bond I was arrested for my 4th dui in Jefferson county. Dodge gave me a fine & passed the bail jumping to Jefferson where I signed a $2500 signature bond. What can I expect my sentence to be? My bac was .13 & I've been going to AA 2-3 times a week & counseling once a week. My last dui charge was almost 8 years ago. I realize I messed up, but I'm trying to do the right thing now, and I don't want bail jumping on my record. What should I do? I have an attorney but could really use a different perspective. The prosecutor wants to give me an additional year of probation on top of me sitting 5+ months. Is that a good deal? Any additional help/advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time!

Why am i being told by the county assessor for my 1ST OWI alcohol assessment to go to six weeks of AODA inpatient treatment?
I received my 1st OWI in Wisconsin April 2013. I voluntarily put myself in a Veteran Affairs inpatient AODA program for six weeks in Milwaukee July 2013. I stayed an additional five weeks in another inpatient program for mental health. After finally paying off all court fines regarding the OWI, i met with a Winnebago County lady for my mandatory alcohol assessment in July 2015. She said I can only keep my license by going back to the same program for six weeks again even though i already completed it. I feel i am being punished twice and feel morally disgusted.
Treatment is not a punishment. If you returned to drinking, or in the assessor's opinion abusing alcohol, you'll need...
