PEOPLE V. S.I.

Client was arrested after an off-duty police officer observed what he believed to be signs of intoxication. Our client had faced DWI charges before in his past, and the prosecution was unwilling to offer anything but 1-3 years in State Prison. Our attorneys reviewed the video tape showing the arrest and the evidence that supported that arrest. A number of weaknesses and inconsistencies were discovered, and our attorneys used these factors to convince the prosecution to offer a sentence of straight probation. Our client did not serve one day in jail and was able to continue his employment, although the first offer from the prosecution would have had him spending months, if not years, in state prison.
