PEOPLE VS. A.W.
This client is employed as a teacher. He was charged with two counts of misdemeanor DWI after being stopped at a roadblock. Due to the fact that he had previously been convicted of DWAI within the previous five years, the initial offer from the DA’s office was a plea to one count of misdemeanor DWI. A misdemeanor could have had a devastating impact on our client’s ability to teach. As such we were able to attack the constitutionality of the road block and secure a plea arrangement that allowed him to plea to another DWAI, which is a non criminal offense. This result will have much less of an impact on our client’s ability to continue on his current career path.
