Waukesha or any other Wisconsin city, you’ll lose your driving privileges. You’re also facing hefty fines, which can range from $350 to over $1,100.

You’ll most likely be placed on probation and you could spend up to 6 months in jail, as well. The judge has to order you to attend an alcohol treatment program – it’s in the law, so there’s no getting around it – and you can be ordered to install (and pay for) an ignition interlock device for 12 to 18 months.

When the court is deciding on the severity of your charge and sentencing recommendation, the district attorney (and later the judge when imposing sentence) will look at your driving record. He or she will also evaluate whether: 

  • There was a child under the age of 16 in your vehicle at the time
  • You were in an accident
  • Someone was seriously injured or killed

If you received your second DUI while your driver’s license was already suspended, you’re guilty of another crime: operating while suspended or operating while revoked.
