Under the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, it's a criminal act to intentionally access a computer or computer system without authorization. The law also allows victims of unauthorized access to sue for damages. In the modern world of the internet and social media, the definition of "unauthorized" has become contentious, however.
In most states, including Wisconsin, judges can suspend or revoke your driver's license if you fail to pay a fine. That can be somewhat counterproductive, as well as costly to the courts. Many people aren't able to earn a living without driving, so suspending their licenses makes it a great deal harder to pay the fine. Continued nonpayment can lead to a vicious debt cycle and thus longer term involvement with the courts than would otherwise be necessary.
