My wife got an OWI… Now what?
When your wife calls from jail to tell you she’s been arrested for first offense drunk driving, it’s just the beginning of a long series of problems for your family. Whether this has happened before or it’s completely unexpected, the consequences start piling up. Your wife could have her license revoked or suspended, spend some time in jail, and lose her job. She’ll owe a variety of fines and fees. Plus explaining everything to your kids, relatives, and friends will be humiliating.
Other sentencing items following your wife’s DUI conviction include:
- SR-22 insurance verification (when she is eligible to drive again)
- Installing an Ignition Interlock Device (depending on her BAC)
- Probation requirements including alcohol assessment and random testing
You may be feeling frustrated, disappointed, and worried about what to do next.
