Question: Can You Explain the Process When Somebody is Arrested for OWI in Wisconsin?

Answer: Assuming there is a test result over the prohibited level, within ten days you need to file an administrative review request with the Department of Transportation. That allows you to have a hearing to determine whether or not your license will be automatically suspended while the case is going on. That hearing has absolutely nothing to do with your court case, however, lawyers who are specialized in this area will oftentimes subpoena the police officers to those hearings to find out the strengths and weaknesses of the case before the prosecution even becomes involved.
