Another Key West DUI Case Reduced to Reckless Driving with Withheld Adjudication

December 2017

For the tenth time this year, we were able to get DUI charges reduced to a single charge of Reckless Driving with a withheld adjudication. This is important to our client, since it allows him to "seal" his record. Once the record is sealed, anyone searching for records of the arrest or the court case will not see it.

If you have a Florida criminal charge for which adjudication was withheld, you may be eligible to have your record sealed, too. We file petitions to seal records for nearly all of our clients whose adjudications are withheld. You can find out more about Florida's record sealing here.

Practice area(s): DUI / DWI

Court: Monroe County Court
