Two DUI cases reduced to Reckless Driving in one day
It's not unusual for us to convince a prosecuting attorney that a DUI case should be reduced to Reckless Driving. Often, a Reckless charge is a good compromise which allows the prosecutor to claim a small victory without our client enduring the risk and the expense of a trial.
It is a little unusual for us to get two cases reduced to Reckless Driving on one day, however. But that is exactly what happened today. One case is in Key West. The other is in Bradenton. And the emails from the Assistant State Attorneys came in within 30 minutes of each other. We will probably jockey for a little better offer on each of them, but both clients were happy.
And both revised offers were the result of pretrial motions filed by us, so we feel good that we did our job.
