Question: Can you explain causing injury or great bodily harm while OWI in Wisconsin and the penalties associated with it?

Answer: Causing injury while operating under the influence in Wisconsin and causing great bodily harm by operating while under the influence in Wisconsin are two charges that are somewhat the same, but they have different penalties. The straight causing injury occurs with a simple bruise or bump and not anything requiring stitches or great bodily harm. The difference between the two charges is the great bodily harm charge is a felony punishable by prison, whereas the straight injury while OWI is not punishable by prison, but is merely a criminal misdemeanor.
