Many of the Judges in Waukesha County have changed their policy regarding allowing convicted repeat OMVWI offenders to report to jail sometime after their sentencing date. (Wisconsin law allows up to 60 days) This is largely in response to recent tragic crashes involving impaired drivers. One such homicide in Oconomowoc took place while the defendant was awaiting his report in date for a recent conviction.
While a few of the judges are making this determination on a case by case basis, I am advising my clients to be prepared to report in on their sentencing date. This will require making arrangements for verification of employment prior to the sentencing hearing.
