How to Get Out of an OWI in Wisconsin

Fighting OWI Charges in Port Washington, WI

Being arrested for Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) can be an overwhelming and terrifying experience.

How to Fight OWI Charges in Wisconsin

An arrest for an OWI does not have to result in a conviction. There may be several legal challenges or defenses that apply to your case. It is imperative that you speak with an attorney as early in the process as possible to ensure you get the best possible outcome in your case. 

Ways to fight an OWI:

  • Lack of Reasonable Suspicion
  • Invalid Chemical Results
  • Lack of Probable Cause

OWI cases can be difficult to win, particularly without the help of an attorney. If you are arrested for an OWI, it is important to know your rights and to exercise them if you are pulled over.

Lack of Reasonable Suspicion

In order to pull you over, an officer must have reasonable suspicion to conduct the stop. A law enforcement officer cannot base the stop on a mere hunch. They must have some valid reason for the stop, such as you were weaving in and out of the lanes and presenting a hazard to other drivers.

Invalid Chemical Results

Another way to fight the charges against you is to challenge the validity of the chemical test results. There may be chain of custody issues with evidence if you submitted a blood test or calibration problems with the breath test that was used to obtain your BAC. The chemical results relied on by the other side will need to be thoroughly investigated and potentially retested by an independent lab. 

Lack of Probable Cause

An officer must have probable cause to place you under arrest. If an officer does not have probable cause to place you under arrest, any evidence may not be used in court. You need to have an attorney review your case to determine whether there was sufficient probable cause to place you under arrest for an OWI.
