PEOPLE V. G.H.
Our client is a combat veteran currently serving in the Army who has been diagnosed with severe PTSD. Our client was approached by Troopers after he pulled over to rest. He submitted to a breath sample and blew a .15. He was ticketed with two counts of DWI, No Stopping/Standing on Pavement, and Improper use of 4 Way/Hazard lights. Our attorneys met with the ADA before the client’s arraignment and explained that he wanted to be a firefighter, was leaving the Army soon on a medical discharge. Through extensive negotiation and presentation of equities our client was offered a plea to one count DWAI, with the minimum fine. This allowed our client to pursue his chosen post-military career as a firefighter.
