VEHICULAR CRIMES

Operating While Intoxicated

If you are driving a motor vehicle and have either a detectable amount of a restricted controlled substance in your blood or a prohibited alcohol concentration, you can be charged with operating while intoxicated (OWI).  In Wisconsin, the penalty for an OWI depends on what number offense it is.  Below is a list of the corresponding penalties:

  • OWI First – Fine
  • OWI Second – Minimum 5 days confinement, maximum 6 months confinement
  • OWI Third – Minimum 45 days confinement, maximum 1-year confinement
  • OWI Fourth – Class H felony, minimum 60 days confinement, maximum 6 years confinement
  • OWI Fifth and Sixth – Class G felony, minimum 6 months confinement, maximum 10 years confinement
  • OWI Seventh, Eighth or Ninth – Class F felony, minimum 3 years confinement, maximum 12.5 years confinement
  • OWI 10th – Class E felony, minimum 4 years confinement, maximum 15 years confinement

An OWI conviction, no matter if it’s your first or tenth, comes with severe monetary consequences including fees for: a driver surcharge, court costs, a jail surcharge, crime lab, a penalty surcharge, safe ride program, and interlock.  An additional consequence is loss of your license.  In order to minimize the costs, it is important to seek the advice of defense counsel as soon as possible.

Injury by Intoxicated use of a Vehicle

If you have a detectable amount of a restricted controlled substance in your blood and you cause injury to another human being as a result of your operation of a vehicle, you can be found guilty of injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle.  In Wisconsin, this is a class F felony.  Defenses against injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle are that you were not operating while intoxicated or that you did not cause injury to another human by operating a vehicle.

Beyond Expectations

My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. He will always be our first choice!

The Outcome was Far Better than I Expected

Attorney Kaehne always communicated with me on what was going on and his plans for future court appearances. The outcome of the case was far more better than I expected and am really pleased that Chad did what he did to get this issue resolved.

Treated like Family

Amazing people as well as amazing attorneys. I was always treated like family.

Not Guilty Verdict

Attorney Corey Mehlos gave my case the upmost attention. He worked very hard and many long hours on it. I was impressed with his dedication and his understanding to my wishes. Not Guilty verdict at my jury trial. I highly recommend him.
