State v. J.A.P., June, 2015
Charges: Fourth Degree DUI
Resolution: Stay of Imposition to an amended count of careless driving and the DUI charges were dismissed. The blood test revealed an alcohol concentration level of 0.15. Despite the client being nearly twice the legal limit, Mr. Gempeler was undeterred in seeking and obtaining a Careless Driving – which is usually reserved for 0.10 or lower. Mr. Gempeler was skillful and diligent in negotiating with a talented prosecutor. The icing on the cake was that the client was not required to complete a significant amount of community service or jail time to earn this outcome. The negotiated sentence required no jail, no community service, a minimal fine, and probation to the court.
