Resource: WI Judicial District OWI Sentencing Guidelines

Many people know that the state has sentencing guidelines for those convicted of certain crimes, but the judicial districts around the state create their own OWI guidelines. You can view these guidelines on the State Bar website.

From the website: "Under Wis. Stat. 346.65(2m), each judicial administrative district is required to adopt guidelines for judges to follow in sentencing for operating while intoxicated. The constitutionality of the guidelines was upheld in State v. Jorgensen, 2003 WI 105; 264 Wis. 2d 157; 667 N.W.2d 318."
