Wisconsin is a drinking state, so a lot of people are sympathetic to cases like this. When someone they know gets "popped" for drunk driving, it's almost treated as a rite of passage like, "Oh you finally got your first DUI!" There's definitely a "It happens to everyone at least once" mentality.
But yeah, I don't know this woman and I don't know the circumstances or anything else other than what the media has fed me but I know it's pretty darn easy to wait until I get home from work to get my drunk on.
