To be eligible for acceptance into the program, an individual must be charged with OWI as a 2nd or 3rd offense; must have a blood alcohol concentration result of .15 or higher or refused the requested test; must be an adult resident of Taylor County; and must not be currently or previously convicted of an OWI related death or injury or a violent crime. Upon conviction, the individual is placed on probation and is subject to the minimum judicial district guideline penalties as a condition of said probation. During the four phases of the program, the individual participates in group and individual treatment, meets with a case manager, meets with a probation agent, and appears at court review hearings. In addition, the individual must have a Sobrietor placed on their telephone and is subject to regular and also random alcohol testing.
