What Are My Chances of Beating OWI Charges in Wisconsin?

Posted by Attorney Stangl on October 14, 2016


Like almost everyone facing charges of operating under the influence of an intoxicant or OWI in Wisconsin, you are probably wondering what your chances are of beating those charges once you get to court.

The truth is, there is no way any Wisconsin OWI lawyer can predict these chances. Driving under the influence or DUI cases are complicated. If you have met with a Madison DUI attorney or Wisconsin DUI attorney who has quantified your chances of winning or told you what your "chances" are of beating drunk driving charges, then beware.

When it comes to choosing the right lawyer to represent you in court, you need to look at a number of important factors before making that decision. One of these factors is their record of success.

This article shares a recent success story from Madison DUI Attorney Patrick Stangl of Stangl Law.

Four Consecutive Jury Victories

Stangl Law Offices in Madison, Wisconsin is dedicated to aggressively fighting to defend its clients. The following success story is one example of this level of expertise and dedication.

Recently, and for the fourth time in a row, a jury refused to convict a client of Attorney Stangl's of operating while under the influence of an intoxicant (OWI). 

A St. Croix County jury sitting in Hudson, Wisconsin found Attorney Stangl's client not guilty of OWI. His client was also charged with operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration charge (PAC).

The above the legal limit, or operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration (PAC) charge was dismissed by the trial court after the conclusion of the State's evidence on Attorney Stangl's motion. 

The court agreed 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 that it had not proven the time of the alleged operating/driving of his client's vehicle. 

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 deliberating approximately an hour and fifteen minutes, the jury returned a unanimous not guilty verdict.

This case represents the fourth time in a row that Attorney Stangl's clients were cleared of both OWI and PAC charges--a total of eight charges--in four consecutive jury trials.
