Result: Acquittal

Charge: OWI

The client was charged with OWI. Our attorney filed a suppression motion during the evidentiary hearing, which the judge granted. The prosecution unsuccessfully filed an appeal of that decision. Our attorney negotiated with the prosecutor and settled the case with a non-OWI ticket.

Result: Charges reduced to non-OWI ticket

Charge: 1st offense OWI, prohibited alcohol concentration

Our attorney took this client’s case to trial, where a judge dismissed the OWI charge but not the charge of prohibited alcohol concentration (PAC). Our attorney filed an appeal and a motion against the PAC conviction. The motion was granted and the prosecutor agreed to amend to non-OWI ticket in order to settle the case.

Result: Acquitted of OWI; prohibited alcohol concentration reduced to non-OWI ticket

Charge: 1st offense OWI

After being arrested for OWI, the client requested an alternative blood or breath test. The arresting officer refused this request. As the case progressed, our attorney filed a motion to suppress the client’s initial blood alcohol test results because the officer refused the client’s request, which is illegal under Wisconsin law. The prosecutor read the motion and offered a reduction of the charge.

Result: OWI reduced to reckless driving

__________________________________


Charge: 1st offense OWI

The client was facing a first offense OWI charge. Our attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence due to the officer unlawfully stopping the client. Our attorney also filed his written arguments with the court. After reading the motion and the arguments, the prosecutor offered to amend the charge from OWI to reckless driving.

Result: Charge reduced to reckless driving

Charge: 2nd offense OWI

This client was charged with a second offense OWI, as he already had an out-of-state conviction on his record. Our attorney filed a motion to collaterally attack the first conviction, as the client was not represented by an attorney at that time. The prosecutor offered to reduce the charge from second offense DUI to a first offense, which meant that the client did not have to serve a mandatory jail sentence or have an ignition interlock device installed on his vehicle.

Result: Charge reduced to 1st offense OWI

Charge: OWI, prohibited alcohol concentration

The arresting officer made several mistakes when arresting this client for OWI, among them refusing the client’s legal right to receive an alternative breath or blood test if requested. Our attorney filed a motion to suppress the chemical test results, as the officer’s refusal was a violation of the client’s rights. The judge ruled in the client’s favor, suppressing the evidence and dismissing the prohibited alcohol concentration charge.

Result: Evidence suppressed; operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration charges dismissed
