DUI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving

October 2019

Our client was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol between .08 and .10. We were able to get a copy of the booking video from the police station when he took the breathalyzer. After watching the video, we were able to point out some issues with the 15-minute observation period the police are supposed to adhere to prior to having a defendant submit to a breathalyzer. After much negotiation with the prosecutor, we were able to convince them to reduce the charge to Reckless Driving. Our client received a one-year filing. If they abide by the conditions of the filing, the charge will be automatically dismissed and expunged at the end of the year.
