Wisconsin man accused of being 5-time drunk driving offender

When people are charged and convicted of DUIs in Wisconsin, they will face penalties, which can include fines and jail time. In most cases, people will learn from their mistakes and not become repeat offenders. Unfortunately, some people fail to learn and end up facing multiple DUI charges. When a person has been charged and convicted of drunk driving, future convictions will result in more serious penalties.

BAC retrograde calculation in DUI conviction is 'inherently unreliable'

Many Wisconsin residents enjoy having a few drinks with dinner or when going out for the evening. While some people may feel extremely intoxicated after having a few drinks, others may be somewhat more tolerant to alcohol. Each person is unique in their ability to process and eliminate alcohol from the body. Factors, including age, body mass index and the amount of food the person has consumed, also play a large role in determining the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to move through a person's system. Anyone who chooses to drive after drinking, however, may face DUI charges in Wisconsin.

Case involving vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated lacks evidence

When police officers detain someone on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, they often administer a Breathalyzer test or field sobriety test to the suspect on site. These tests help Wisconsin officers determine whether or not the suspect is driving with a blood alcohol concentration that is over the legal limit. If the proper protocol is not followed, or if the officers do not find enough evidence to hold the driver on DUI charges, they are often forced to let them go. When the DUI crime involves the death of another driver, evidence becomes even more crucial in the case.

Having a DUI charge on a criminal record can affect many aspects of a person’s life. Not only does it make finding employment in certain industries difficult, but it can generally ruin one’s reputation as well. This is especially frustrating for Wisconsin residents who have been falsely arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol.

Wisconsin Supreme Court may change law that some deem unconstitutional

The U.S. Constitution grants American citizens certain rights. This includes the Fourth Amendment right protecting people from unlawful search and seizure by law enforcement. Many states require a warrant in order to obtain a blood sample from a motorist suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. While each state has different laws and policies regarding the collection of evidence in a DUI case, some states, including Wisconsin, are under fire for having seemingly unlawful blanket policies and procedures on this issue.

First time DUI offenders in Wisconsin must appear in court

Wisconsin motorists who have been charged with a DUI for the first time may have been caught off-guard. Some drivers may not be fully aware that they are driving while intoxicated. State law constitutes anyone who operates a vehicle with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 percent or above as legally intoxicated. Depending on body weight and tolerance, however, some drinkers may be able to reach that blood alcohol content and still feel it within their ability to drive.

Many Waukesha residents enjoy having a few glasses of wine or beer when dining at a nice restaurant. Those who do so, however, must be careful about whether they choose to drive afterward. While many feel competent to drive after having a few drinks, they may be facing serious consequences if they are pulled over and charged with drunk driving, especially if it is not their first offense.
