It’s almost that time of year! Many will sit down to enjoy some corned beef and cabbage or perhaps a shepherd’s pie served with some Irish soda bread. Of course, all the fare likely washed down with a cold pint of Guinness. Yes, I am talking about St. Patrick’s Day. Imagine this, you have just been out with your friends at the local bar having some Irish car bombs and a few green beers; after spending some time with great company, you make the decision to call it a night. You say goodbye to your friends and get in your car to drive home. As you begin your drive, you think that you are sober enough to drive because you had some water before you left the bar. You are almost home, when you notice red and blue lights flashing in your rearview mirror. An officer approaches your vehicle and asks if you’ve been drinking. You cooperate with the officer and after the interaction, it is determined that you are over the legal limit for blood alcohol content.
What happens now? Being pulled over and being charged with an OWI can be a scary thing. The penalties can be overwhelming and life changing. The Wisconsin Legislature has continually increased the penalties for operating under the influence. The impact on your life can result in the loss of your freedom, loss of your job, loss of your license, and loss of money. Hiring a lawyer to help you through the legal process is a crucial decision. At Adolph Legal, we will work with you to develop a legal strategy that benefits you. If you decide to celebrate the holiday with a few drinks, please be safe and designate a sober driver!
