State of Wisconsin v. N.B., (Rock County).

Client was charged with operating while intoxicated (OWI) and operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration (PAC) as a third (3rd) offense.

The client was pulled over in the early morning hours for alleged erratic driving and registered an alcohol concentration significantly above the legal limit. During the pretrial proceedings the State alleged that it was a third offense based on two prior convictions, one of which was from Illinois.

Attorney Stangl filed a motion to dismiss the case because of evidence he discovered indicating that the conviction upon which the State was relying on was not a countable conviction.

After reviewing the motion to dismiss the State agreed and the criminal OWI/PAC 3rd charges were amended to a first offense (OWI/PAC 1st). The case was successfully resolved and the client was also not required to install an Ignition Interlock Device in his vehicle.
