Our client was driving back from a party and became distracted which caused him to stop paying attention and swerve out of his lane. He was stopped and ultimately took a Breathalyzer yielding a .13. Our client is enlisted in the Army, and the Army is currently reducing its numbers. Anyone who receives an alcohol related conviction can be discharged and their benefits are terminated. Our client confirmed this with his chain of command. After ongoing negotiations, our client was allowed to plead to one count of Reckless Driving and one count “Moved from lane Unsafely.” Our client was very happy that his Army career was not affected, as he plans on serving a full career and retiring from the Army.
