State v. V.X., April, 2018
Charges: 2nd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor
Resolution: Plea to a 3rd Degree DWI. The initial offer from the State was for 45 days to be served in custody - a truly terrible offer for a second-time offender. Through North Star's strategic approach, the client was afforded an opportunity to plead to a 3rd Degree, with no jail to be served. Importantly, the plea to a 3rd Degree now positions the client to seek the return of her vehicle that was pending forfeiture on the conviction to a 2nd Degree. This last part was the primary goal of the client. Another client more than satisfied with our diligent and aggressive defense.
