Result = Felony Aggravated DUI reduced to misdemeanor.
Client accused of actual physical control with a blood alcohol concentration above .20. Conducted in-depth investigation of witnesses, evidence, video footage. Presented extensive client mitigation and weaknesses in State’s case to the prosecution. Risk of initial charges = up to 3.75 years prison, 10 years probation, almost $5000 in mandatory fines and assessments, driver’s license revocation, alcohol counseling, ignition interlock requirement. Result after presenting client’s case strengths and issues to prosecution = misdemeanor DUI requiring only 3 weekends of jail and misdemeanor fines and penalties. Fantastic and rare result.
