How hard is it to fight a OWI charge for prescription medication in you're system In the state of Wisconsin?
In april of 2012 I was prescribed ambien by my doctor. It caused me to get up and sleep drive with out even knowing it. I don't remember a thing but I crashed my car and refused to take a roadside test. The DA offered 10 days jail time, 2 years probation, $500 fine, and revoked DL for a year. I think thats way to harsh and want to fight this. I also read on the FDA website, as of May this year the FDA placed more on the warning label about sleep driving, and are telling doctors to cut doses in half. It also said from 2007 to 2012 the FDA has recived over 700 reports of sleep driving. What are the odds of fighting this. Since WI looks at all OWI's the same way.
You should contact an attorney to discuss further as you may have possible defenses. Good luck.
Arrested for OWI in Wisconsin while sitting in car in parking lot with engine running to keep from freezing in the cold weather
A friend of mine was sitting in his car in a hotel parking lot (in the Green Bay, WI area) around 2:30 AM last Friday morning trying to stay warm because of the freezing weather, when he was approached by a police officer and arrested for Operating While Under Influence. Need to know if there are any possible defenses to this charge based on the fact that he wasn't operating the vehicle or pulled over when he was arrested, but rather trying to keep from freezing to death by running his car and sitting in a parking lot. The exact charge is 346.63(1)(a) OWI 6th Offense. He goes before a judge this afternoon - I'm assuming that's when they will determine his bail amount, etc?
Turning the ignition on in a vehicle constitutes "operating" in Wisconsin.

Was he placed on probation for these offenses or did the offenses occur while he was on probation for a different case?...

Can police legally monitor IDs shown to enter a tavern, then wait near a person's home to try to catch for OWI/DUI?
A local tavern where I live (Wisconsin) takes & scans IDs from all customers on entrance. Can Police monitor this, a person's name & address, then wait & watch near their home, in hopes of an OWI / DUI arrest? Is this legal?
Is this a fact, or are you asking a hypothetical question? Police can monitor taverns (they do it all the time) and...

I received an underage ticket for drinking in a bar (UAL-ON LIC PPREMISE 1ST OFFENSE) and also was given a ticket for loitering (U/A LOITERING IN A TAVERN). I bought drinks, even though I was underage and was also talking to people. Is the ticket for loitering right? Also, I was smoking a cigarette outside at the time they came up and questioned me, so they never saw me in the bar but I did say I was.
