NEW OWI PENALTIES MOVE FORWARD

NEW OWI PENALTIES MOVE FORWARD

Lawmakers in Madison are taking some baby steps toward getting tougher on drunk drivers. 

The state Assembly yesterday approved two plans to increase OWI penalties.  The first would require first time OWI offenders to appear in court.  The other would set a five-year mandatory-minimum sentence for deadly OWI crashes.  The plans now head to the state Senate where their fate is not 100-percent certain.
