Client was pulled over for no headlights and speeding. After a DUI investigation, Client was arrested for a DUI. Client submitted to a breath test with a result of .076 and .074.
The prosecutor made a plea offer to Reckless Driving. We declined the offer and set the case to trial. Two weeks prior to the trial, the prosecutor made a new offer to a civil charge for No Headlights and Civil speeding. We put client into defensive driving school for speeding and the speeding charge was dismissed.
The prosecutor was motivated to make the new offer because three weeks earlier we were able to get a not guilty verdict in a jury trial against the same prosecutor on a higher breath alcohol reading.
