Probation: Will probation be an option for me?
In OWI-2nd and OWI-3rd cases, probation is never an option. Probation can be given in OWI-4th and subsequent cases. However, there is a minimum mandatory jail sentence that the probationer must serve as a condition of probation. Not all courts use probation in OWI cases. To determine if probation is an option, it is best to discuss your case with a qualified attorney.
