Illinois Driver Pleads to Refusal and OWI dismissed

Mortgage broker and recent grandfather from Illinois was arrested for DUI while in Wisconsin. Illinois law allows for deferred prosecutions on first offense and sometimes second offense DUI and therefore they are often not counted as convictions. Wisconsin first offense owi is counted as a conviction in Illinois so Illinois drivers who get a first offense owi in Wisconsin can lose their Illinois license for up to life. Attorney Griessmeyer was able to get a plea to refusal with a dismissal of the owi charge. This saved the client over $800 and also prevented him from potentially losing his Illinois license for life. He lost his Wisconsin license for 12 months based on the refusal.
