Fourth Offense OWI? Nope. Obear gets it dropped to a First

  • Birdsall Obear

State of Wisconsin v. RD

R was driving home one night when he didn't see the stop sign at an intersection and ran into another vehicle, injuring six people. To make matters worse, this was R's 3rd time being arrested for drunk driving. Kirk dug through the old records from the prior convictions and found an argument that his constitutional rights had been violated.

A motion that Kirk filed resulted in the case being dropped down to a first offense OWI, with no jail or criminal conviction. Originally facing over 6 years in prison, R ended up not having to serve a single day in jail.
