Operating While Intoxicated Citations
If you have been issued a citation for Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) or Operating with a Restricted Controlled Substance (ORCS), you have the right to a jury trial. The request for a jury trial, along with a check made payable to the clerk of circuit court for $36, must be received in our court office within 10 days of entering your plea. Pursuant to state statutes, any monies posted for a jury trial are non-refundable, nor may the monies be applied to the forfeiture imposed if you are found guilty of the offense.
The following penalties are assessed if found guilty of OWI or ORCS:
Prohibited Alcohol Concentration (PAC)
- Forfeiture imposed
- Mandatory drug and alcohol assessment
- Mandatory revocation of your driver's license
You may receive a second citation for PAC. Although you can be convicted of both OWI and PAC, points and penalties will only be imposed on one.
If there was a refusal, you may request a hearing with the New Berlin Municipal Court in writing within 10 days of the issuance of the Notice of Intent to Revoke. Please refer to the information given to you at the time of your arrest pertaining to procedures.
Ignition Interlock Device (IID)
If you are required to install an IID in your car, there are four IID vendors
that are currently approved by the State of Wisconsin. Please contact the vendor directly for installation questions. A list of service centers
is also available from the DOT.
