Is there a way to use behavioral health as a defense against an OWI?
I received an OWI 2nd back in August of 2011. I am trying to get it reduced to reckless driving since I've heard that expungement in Wisconsin is rare. (I'm trying to switch to Active Army from National Guard, and can't with two on my record.) I didn't get in severe trouble with the Army for this offense because I went to behavioral health a week prior asking for help with anger management and depression, which led to a drinking problem. I didn't receive the proper help and a week later got the OWI. Is there a way to use this as a defense since I wasn't in a clear state of mind before I even started drinking? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
