Wisconsin drivers may want to update themselves on a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that stemmed from an OWI case that occurred in this state. The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects people against unlawful searches or seizures. A challenge was issued in court a while back, asserting that a man's personal rights had been violated.
If law enforcement arrests you for operating while intoxicated in the state of Wisconsin, you face some harsh penalties, including fines, license suspension and possible jail time.
If a Wisconsin police officer arrests you, he or she must have first established probable cause for doing so. Perhaps you got pulled over in a traffic stop and an officer searched your vehicle. If that situation occurred without your consent and without the officer obtaining a valid warrant, and you are now facing charges for drug crimes, you may have grounds to challenge the legitimacy of the case based on a personal rights violation.
