OWI defense: Mental defect

I know our OWI laws are loose, but seriously?! I can't wait to see the outcome of this...

STEVENS POINT, Wis. — A Plainfield man charged with his 11th offense of driving while intoxicated has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental defect.

Oh you found this case too huh?

In our county court we had a guy use the defense of mental defect to try and get out of the PAC violation.

In my court they would get a plea to diversion or some other BS. Anything to avoid a trial.

I didn't read the article, are they alleging the mental defect on the part of the driver, or his lawyer?
