In this case we had a client who had potential career ramifications based on her being charged with an Aggravated DWI (alleged .20 BAC), common law DWI and speeding. The DA’s office was sympathetic to our client’s concerns but could not reduce such a high BAC to a non criminal DWAI during several negotiation sessions. Ultimately because of the client’s career we prepared and went to hearings on the matter to challenge the probable cause for her arrest. At the hearing our team was able to poke serious holes in the case and demonstrate to the Court and the ADA that the officer had failed in several aspects of administering the field sobriety tests. As such, we were able to re-conference the case with the ADA. She acknowledged that she had issues in her case because of the hearings and offered a DWAI in full satisfaction of all the charges. This allowed our client to avoid a criminal conviction and to continue on her career path. Without the efforts of our team on this case the results could have been much different for our client and the consequences could have continued to haunt her indefinitely.
