PEOPLE V. J.H.
It was alleged our client had a BAC of 0.21 and was involved in a bad motor vehicle accident. He also had a CDL which he needed for his job. Any type of alcohol related conviction would have caused him to lose his CDL for at least 1 year and, as a consequence, his job. After a pre-trial hearing in which the weakness of the prosecution’s case was explored, the District Attorney offered a reduction to a non-alcohol charge of Reckless Driving that allowed our client to keep his CDL and his job.
