If you have been arrested for DUI (driving while under the influence) or OWI (operating while intoxicated) in Janesville, you need to act quickly. If you submitted to a breath test, you have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing before the Department of Transportation (“DOT”). The DOT hearing is completely separate from the court process, but affects your ability to drive almost immediately.
Where you are arrested also affects the punishment you are facing, as each county (and Janesville is in Rock County) has its own DUI/OWI guidelines. These guidelines advise judges on how to sentence people convicted of OWI or DUI. The main factor in sentencing is your blood alcohol content. Janesville’s DUI/OWI guidelines cannot be found online, as Rock County does not follow the same guidelines as the other counties in its judicial district. Contact Attorney Karyn T. Missimer at (262)565-8201 to find out more about Rock County’s DUI/OWI guidelines.
