Tougher Laws for Drunk Driving in Wisconsin

Senator Darling and Rep. Ott will bring three bills to the table regarding tougher penalties for a Wisconsin OWI.  The tougher penalties include making a Third Offense Wisconsin OWI a felony (currently it is a misdemeanor).  Any Wisconsin OWI charge which causes injury to another would have a mandatory sentence of 6 months in jail.  A drunk driving charge causing a fatality would hold a minimum sentence of 10 years.
