Not Guilty of OWI, Not Guilty of PAC in Hudson, WI
Wisconsin Attorney Pat Stangl recently went to trial representing the case of a client facing PAC and OWI charges. The case was tried by a St. Croix jury sitting in Hudson, Wisconsin who ultimately found Attorney Stangl's client not guilty of OWI.
That same jury also found Attorney Stangl's client not guilty of PAC, a lesser-known, but frequently-charged offense in Wisconsin.

During the trial, Attorney Stangl argued that there was insufficient evidence to support a conviction on the PAC charge because the State failed to produce expert testimony establishing the relevance of the blood test result, given the fact time of operation of his client's vehicle had not been proven.
The State's blood test evidence indicated the client's blood alcohol concentration was 3.5 times the legal limit.
The jury was then left to decide the criminal OWI charge.
After approximately an hour and 15 minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous not guilty verdict for Attorney Stangl's client.
