If you’re a resident of the State of Wisconsin, and you’re arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will be charged with an OWI or Operating While Intoxicated. If you are charged, Caplan & Tamburino Law Attorneys Allan Caplan and Joseph Tabmburino are fully licensed to practice in the State of Wisconsin and are experienced OWI attorneys.
Similar to other drunk driving offenses, you are guilty of OWI charges in Wisconsin when you drive or are in physical control (OPERATING) of a motor vehicle and are under the influence of alcoholic beverages, chemical or controlled substance to the extent that your mental faculties are impaired or when your blood alcohol level (BAC) is above the legal limit. Wisconsin and other states typically use the term OWI as opposed to DWI or DUI with the operative word being “operating”.
OWI is a very serious criminal law matter, possibly involving a felony conviction, even a prison sentence, depending on the severity of the charges. Your state’s department of motor vehicles can also take other actions against you whether you are actually convicted or not.
