OMG, EVERS OPEN TO STRICTER OWI PENALTIES

OMG, EVERS OPEN TO STRICTER OWI PENALTIES

2019 is here, and that could mean harsher penalties for drivers convicted of OWI for the first time.  

Wisconsin Governor-elect Tony Evers has said he’s open to the stricter penalties, and he has some support from the law enforcement community.  Right now, a first-time OWI is considered a civil offense, not a criminal one.  It already carries hefty fines and the possibility of losing your license, but leaders hope making the offense criminal could discourage repeat offenders.
