In this case our client was a veteran in the U.S. Military. He had been out with some friends having drinks and on his way home drove into a ditch. From there he started walking home. While walking he got a call from the police where he admitted to being in the accident and gave the officers his address. He was ultimately charged with two misdemeanor counts of DWI after allegedly blowing a .09 BAC. The client was concerned about his security clearance and his career. We were able to convince the ADA to offer a plea to driving across the hazard markings and leaving the scene tickets, emphasizing that our client was very cooperative and in fact directed the officers to him. His low BAC and our extensive work to help this client allowed him to avoid and alcohol conviction and continue serving our country without any additional ramifications.
