Wisconsin OWI offenders face required jail time

On Tuesday, March 18 the Wisconsin Senate approved a bill that would require drunk drivers to spend a month in jail if they caused injury to someone while intoxicated.

If approved by Governor Scott Walker, judges would immediately sentence OWI (operating while intoxicated) offenders to jail for a minimum of 30 days. In addition to the 30 day sentence, drivers convicted of their 7th drunk driving offense could face a sentence of 3 years in prison.

Sadly, people who are injured by intoxicated drivers often struggle from physical and financial hardships during the recovery process.
