State law on repeat drunken driving not working well says report
Those with five drunken driving convictions in Wisconsin are supposed to go to prison.
But most don't - not in the state's largest county, at least.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that only 43 percent of the 161 Milwaukee County residents convicted of five-time OWI from 1999-2006 went to prison.
They averaged 18 months behind bars for their felonies. A quarter of the drunken drivers re-offended once or twice more.
