PEOPLE VS. J.M.
In this case, our client was charged with three misdemeanor counts of DWI, including aggravated DWI as it was alleged that he blew a .20. He had prior alcohol convictions from 1996 and 1999. We were able to secure a great offer for our client by demonstrating that there were issues with proof of operation. Our client was found sleeping in the drivers seat of the vehicle but the only person who allegedly saw him driving was a civilian. There were issues with the civilian’s allegations and we were able to convince the ADA that this warranted a reduction to the traffic infraction of DWAI. This allowed our client to avoid excessive fines, the Ignition Interlock device, and most importantly a criminal conviction.
