All Charges Dropped
Found in his parked car with a friend and some open bottles, our client was facing a fourth DUI offense, along with 3 years of prison time and 2 more for probation violation. We didn’t back down in court, and the state dropped all charges after a short recess. Our client did not receive jail time, points, or probation – and he only paid a $50 fine.
Probationary Deal on a Second Offense
Our client had a .18 BAC in a notoriously heavy-handed jurisdiction, Harford County, where people can easily do 60 days active time on a second offense. Our firm negotiated a plea deal for our client that achieved no conviction, no points, and no jail. The Judge was incredibly impressed with the mitigation package we presented on behalf of client, who was very pleased with the results.
No Jail Sentence
Our firm secured a no-jail sentence for our client from a very tough Judge in Frederick County. Our client blew a .20 on a third offense, and the prosecutor was asking for active jail time. The Judge said the mitigation package we devised for the client made all the difference and led him to ignore the prosecutor’s jail recommendation in favor of just probation.
One of our DUI clients was facing up to 1 year in jail if convicted, plus $1000 in fines, 12 points on her driving record, and 3 years of supervised probation. By negotiating with the prosecution, we were able to secure a much better result. Our client did not receive a conviction, points, or jail time – instead, she paid only a few hundred dollars and received 1 year of unsupervised probation.
After his fifth DUI charge, our client was facing up to 3 years in prison for a conviction. By showing that the field sobriety test result was affected by the client’s disability, our defense attorneys were able to secure a “not guilty” verdict on all counts, after the jury deliberated for only 12 minutes.
Probationary Deal on Sixth Offense
After being arrested for their sixth DUI, our client faced 3 years in jail, up to $3,000 in fines, and a system inclined to award maximum penalties to repeat offenders. Our team managed to secure a probationary deal with no jail time for this client.
