If you have been arrested for DUI (driving while under the influence) or OWI (operating while intoxicated) in Monroe, you need to act quickly. If you agreed to a breath test, you only have 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, yet affects your ability to drive almost immediately.
Where you were arrested is important to understanding the punishment you face, as each county (and Monroe is in Green County) has its own DUI/OWI guidelines. These guidelines tell judges how to sentence people convicted of OWI or DUI. The most important factor at sentencing is generally your blood alcohol content. Monroe’s DUI/OWI guidelines can be found online at Green County Guidelines. Email Attorney Karyn T. Missimer about defending your DUI/OWI charge today.
