Consequences to Holders of Commercial Drivers Licenses
If any of the listed offenses (except Open Container offenses) are committed while operating a commercial motor vehicle or were committed by a holder of a commercial drivers license (CDL) after September 30, 2005, the following sanctions are applicable:
- For first offenders, a 1-year CDL disqualification (a 3-year CDL disqualification if transporting hazardous materials).
- For 2nd and subsequent offenders (with first offense after July 1, 1987), a lifetime CDL disqualification.
A CDL Holder may choose to fight the case since the penalties are much greater for an OWI in the state of Wisconsin. When fighting a DUI it is crucial to have a lawyer look over your case to make sure you get the best defense and outcome. A lawyer can build a strong defense for you by:
- Collecting all the records and evidence in the case that will be used against you.
- Reviewing all the evidence to build a defense in your case.
- Looking into the probable cause for the sop if you got pulled over by the PD.
- Looking into the probable cause of the arrest to make sure your rights weren’t violated.
- Investigating the chemical test.
- Looking into the evidence and making sure it was handled correctly.
- Watching all videos that correspond for your case.
- Making sure you were given due process in the whole OWI arrest process.
- Going to court with you on all court dates.
- Appearing for motions or trials in your case.
