The process of a Wisconsin OWI ultimately leads to one decision: Do you want to take a plea offer or do you want to go to trial? Most attorneys are afraid to go to trial. With the knowledge and experience of Wisconsin DUI Attorney Nathan Dineen, the benefits of going to trial outweigh the “benefits” of taking a plea offer. Attorney Dineen understands the process of jury trials, is a Certified Field Sobriety Test Instructor, and Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE).
Wisconsin OWI Trial Process
A trial is held before the judge or a jury. Based on the facts presented, the court may find you “Not Guilty.” With a not guilty verdict, the drunk driving charge is removed from your record. If you were to agree with the plea offer, the Wisconsin DUI remains on your record for life.
Selecting a Jury for your Wisconsin DUI
Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney Nathan Dineen uses a process known as Voir Dire to become familiar with the potential jury. Attorney Dineen will ask questions to determine which jury people will best vote in favor of his client. He and the prosecuting attorney dismiss potentials to determine the members of the jury based on the answers to these questions. When the final members of the jury are selected, they are sworn in and given a set of instructions. The jury will listen to both sides and the witnesses before coming to an agreed verdict.
Wisconsin OWI: Witness Credibility
Wisconsin OWI Attorney Dineen and the prosecuting attorney will call witnesses to the stand to testify. The witnesses usually include the arresting officer(s), yourself (if discussed with Attorney Dineen), and any experts (if needed). Each attorney asks the witness or expert questions highlighting the events of the WI DUI arrest.
