Under Wisconsin laws, a vehicular homicide while intoxicated is a Class D Felony offense, unless the operator has previous qualifying convictions, in which case it is then a Class C Felony offense.
The term "intoxicated" means that the operator of the motor vehicle was legally drunk (had a blood alcohol concentration level in excess of the legal limit), or was under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicant or drug (including both legal and illegal drugs).
