This result allowed out client to avoid the interlock device, potential probation and a criminal conviction.
Client was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts of DWI. He was in an substantial accident and ended up blowing a .16 on the breath machine. Given the bad accident and the relatively high blood alcohol content the DA’s office was originally unable to offer our client a plea that would not result in a criminal conviction. After looking further at the case and breaking down the police paperwork we were able to determine that there were some legal issues in the case. We made our pitch to the ADA and were able to get our client a plea deal, the deal included one count of DWAI. This allowed out client to avoid the interlock device, potential probation and a criminal conviction.
