OWI 2nd Offense Fond du Lac County Circuit Court Minimum Sentence
Updated: Mar 12
Despite our best efforts, no criminal defense attorney is able to acquit every single client. Sometimes the job is damage control. This means obtaining the best possible outcome for a client. In drunk driving cases this means reducing the amount of time the client will spend in jail, ensuring the client is able to participate in work release and electronic monitoring programs and limiting driver’s license revocation periods. This ensures that the client is able to put the incident behind them, work and contribute to society.
The statutory minimum and maximum period of incarceration for a 2nd Offense OWI in Wisconsin is 5 days to 6 months. This is a wide range. In this particular case, due to a variety of factors and extended negotiations with the District Attorney’s Office, Atty. Skarie was able to obtain a joint recommendation for the statutory minimum penalty – 5 days.
Client, who is a single father, was able to serve his sentence over a long weekend and resume caring for his family. Excellent outcome and happy client.
