OWI 1st Offense Hales Corners Municipal Court Reduced to Reckless Driving

Updated: Mar 12

Very interesting case. Client was an underage college student driving home the morning after a college party with a few friends. Pulled over for defective tail lamp. Intoximeter test result came back in excess of the legal limit. Client is in a predicament as the client's chosen career path involved operating large automobiles and a clean driver's license was an absolute necessity.

Through extended negotiations with the prosecuting attorney, Atty. Skarie was able to reduce the charges to an absolute sobriety violation which does not count as a drunk driving conviction. Client was able to continue down his intended career path serving his community. Fantastic outcome.
