Practice Area:DUI and DWI
Outcome: DUI reduced to below .15 and Leaving the Scene reduced to a civil citation
Description: Our client was charged with DUI and Leaving the Scene of the Accident after crashing his vehicle into a business sign.
Our client gave a breath sample to the police that was over a .15, the dividing line for enhanced penalties and fines.
After extensive research and negotiating with the State Attorney’s Office, the State stipulated that our client’s blow was below a .15 (saving him nearly $1,000 in additional fines and ignition interlock fees). The State also reduced the Leaving the Scene of the Accident charge to a civil citation, saving our client an additional criminal charge and even more money in court costs/fines.
