DUI Case Reduced to Reckless Driving
For the twelfth time this year, we have gotten a DUI case reduced to a charge of Reckless Driving. This means that the prosecutors have agreed that they might have a difficult time getting a conviction of DUI, and so we compromised on a lesser charge. This is important for our clients, because a Reckless Driving charge carries a lot fewer mandatory penalties, like the requirement of carrying high-risk (FR-44) car insurance for three years.
This time, the reduction from DUI to Reckless Driving came on the morning when the jury was scheduled to be selected. Our client left the courthouse happy.
Practice area(s): DUI / DWI
