Man facing OWI charges in Wisconsin

As summer winds down in Wisconsin, many motorcycle enthusiasts are getting as much road time as they can, often taking passengers along for their rides. Many say there's nothing like being out on the open road, soaring along on two wheels through a cool, summer breeze. Such an adventure can come to a screeching halt, however, if an accident occurs, which is what happened to one motorcyclist and his passenger; in fact, the driver is now facing OWI charges because of the incident.

A 40-year-old male biker had a female passenger at the time. Although officials did not provide specific details about what caused the motorcycle to crash, they did say they believe that the motorcyclist had something to do with it. The woman traveling on the back of the bike was hurt and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Thankfully, her injuries were not life-threatening. As for the driver, it apparently is not the first time he has been in trouble with the law for OWI. Repeat offenses often incur more severe penalties under conviction than someone might face on a first offense.

Some Wisconsin motorists are able to avoid OWI convictions altogether by building strong defense strategies under the guidance of experienced criminal law attorneys. Much will depend on the value and extent of the prosecution evidence. An attorney knows the ins and outs of the criminal justice system and can recommend the best course of action in a particular circumstance. A person can request legal representation as soon as he or she has been detained.
