Case Results

Reduction to Reckless Driving

September 2016

Our client was interested in getting his case resolved without the expense and stress of sitting through a jury trial, even though it was our opinion that the prospects for a trial were good. But it's his case, not ours. We worked out a "plea bargain" to Reckless Driving, and our client was a happy camper.

Practice area(s): DUI / DWI

Court: Sarasota
