WASHBURN COUNTY  --  A Shell Lake, WI woman has been sentenced on her felony charges for Operating While Intoxicated 4th Offense.

DrydenWire.com reported on January 19, 2018 that Vickie Fisher, of Shell Lake, WI, was facing charges of Felony Class H Felony 4th OWI and Class H Felony 4th Offense Operating with a Prohibited Alcohol Concentration after she was pulled over by the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office on December 10, 2017, for deviating from her lane of traffic.

Due to the fact that Fisher was exhibiting signs of being intoxicated, deputies conducted field sobriety testing with her which she was not able to complete successfully.

Fisher was placed under arrest and because she refused to voluntarily supply a sample of her blood for evidentiary testing, a search warrant for a sample of her blood was obtained by the deputies.

A toxicology report shows that testing by the Wisconsin State Forensic Toxicology Laboratory indicated a blood alcohol concentration result of .179 in Fisher’s blood.

The maximum penalty for a conviction of Class H Felony 4th Offense OWI is imprisonment for not more than 6 years, a maximum fine of $10,000, or both.

Fisher recently appeared for a sentencing hearing in Washburn County Circuit Court. The Court ordered a sentence of 2 years probation with 60 Days conditional jail time (Fisher received credit for 2 days served) with Huber privileges.

Conditions of Fisher’s probation require the following: she is not to consume any alcohol; not to enter an establishment that sells alcohol; continue counseling and treatment; and complete an Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment.
