Client straight pled to the two counts and obtained a departure to a gross misdemeanor sentence with no additional jail to serve. The County Attorney would not consider a non-felony outcome on the fleeing charge due to the client speeding in excess of 100 mph and extinguishing his headlights, while drunk. The client heeded our firm's advice in being proactive in obtaining a chemical dependency evaluation, following the recommendations, serving his revocation period, and having no further criminal issues. Utilizing a compelling client and the fact that he ceased the fleeing in short order, Mr. Gempeler was able to make the successful sentencing argument. On top of that, we negotiated a buy-back for the forfeited vehicle. Altogether, the client is thrilled to avoid the felony, not have to serve additional jail, and have his car back. Another client back on track without having this one-time mistake define him.
