May 23, 2017

Client on police camera driving wrong way down a divided street. Client admits on camera that he is impaired. Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .146, almost twice the legal limit. Reviewed all evidence and police videos. Discovered right to counsel issue for leverage. Analyzed and found potential contamination argument in laboratory’s results. Utilized extensive mitigation of client’s life achievements despite adversities in communications with prosecution. Result = DUI charges dropped to a reckless driving charge. No DUI conviction for a young person just starting out, significantly reduced fines, all jail time suspended. A good win. DUI – .146 BAC + wrong-way driving + admissions, dropped to reckless driving class 2 misdemeanor
