State v. K.B., May, 2018
Charges: Felony Fleeing and Gross Misdemeanor DWI (with an elevated reading)
Resolution: Plea to the gross misdemeanor DWI and the felony fleeing charge was dismissed. Additionally, the vehicle was returned to the client, instead of being forfeited due to the second degree conviction. So, after all is said and done, the felony count is dismissed, the vehicle is returned, and the client faces a standard second-time DWI sentence. With such an expensive vehicle possibly being forfeited and the additional felony count, such an outcome is truly remarkable. The client was expecting far worse in a smaller community in which he knows there have been worse consequences. Despite this being the first trip to a northern county for North Star, our professional approach quickly gained the trust of the County attorney and led to this great outcome. Some worry that hiring a "big city" attorney for a case outside of the metro can work against you. That's not the case with our attorneys because we know how to establish the rapport with the prosecutor quickly and fight the case in the appropriate manner. Our clients get fantastic results, everywhere.
