What are PAC charges?

Under Wisconsin Statute 346.63(1)(b), “No person may drive or operate a motor vehicle while…the person has a prohibited alcohol concentration.”

PAC, or Prohibited Alcohol Concentration, charges are applied to cases where the arrestee’s blood alcohol concentration was above the legal limit of 0.08%. This level applies to:

  • First Offense OWI
  • Second Offense OWI
  • Third Offense OWI

Subsequent offenses, or Felony OWI Charge, with PAC require a significantly lower BAC level of 0.02%—making it that much easier for cops to take advantage of your situation.
