Wisconsin Homicide With Vehicle While Driving Drunk

Homicide By Intoxicated Use Of A Vehicle or Firearm

Under Wisconsin statutes, if a person causes the death of another person or an unborn child because of the manner in which he or she handles a private or commercial vehicle or an air gun or a firearm while under the influence of an intoxicant, with a detectable amount of restricted controlled substance in his or her blood, or with a prohibited blood alcohol concentration level, then that person can be charged with a Class D Felony (is punishable by a fine not to exceed $100,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 25 years, or both) if they have no other prior counting charges against them.

Homicide By Intoxicated Use Of A Vehicle or Firearm

In the situation above, and when a person has prior convictions, suspensions, or revocations, the charge can be increased to a Class C Felony (punishable by a fine not to exceed $100,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 40 years, or both). Additionally, other restrictions can apply if a person has prior convictions.
