This plea deal allowed her to avoid any criminal record and any charge associated with drugs or alcohol.
In this case, our client was charged with the misdemeanor charge of DWAI Drugs. She was alleged to have driven down a one way street the wrong way. Her BAC was relatively low and Hydrocodone was found in her system. We were able to show the ADA that she did not have a history of drug abuse nor was she a continuous offender. Our client had significant medical issues which made it necessary to take narcotics for pain. Even though her prescription itself was not a legal defense to the charge, it did sway the prosecutor to offer her a plea outside of the alcohol and drug category. She plead guilty to disorderly conduct and a parking ticket. This plea allowed her to avoid any criminal record and any charge associated with drugs or alcohol.
