Your OWI And Ignition Interlock Devices

A conviction for drunk driving comes with various serious penalties, including jail time, expensive fines and more. One of the penalties that could have a negative impact on your life if you find yourself facing OWI charges is the required installation of an ignition interlock device.

How drinking diet soda can mess up a Breathalyzer test

Summer in Wisconsin is in full swing, and if you're one of many college students home for the holiday break, you're likely enjoying some down time with friends and family. You may participate in the multitude of fun things to do throughout the state during summer months, including live music concerts, picnics, trips to the beach and more. Sometimes, however, something unexpected occurs that can ruin your summer plans, such as a police officer pulling you over on your way home from a night on the town.

Drunk Math: When a Second OWI is a First, a Third OWI is a Third, and a Fourth OWI is Trouble.

When someone is charged with an OWI offense, one of the first obstacles is determining how many prior OWI-type offenses that individual has. While this may seem like task fit for a Sesame Street character, piecing together the complicated definitions of what constitutes a prior "offense" with the applicable time limits can often feel like advanced algebra. We at Nicholson & Gansner hope to offer some clarity on OWI "counting" to ensure that, if you are cited for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, your penalties are not increased for a prior offense that shouldn't be held against you.
