State v. A.S.

October, 2022
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor charges

Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving. The client blew a .12 and had no legal defenses. Typically, anything above a .10 is too high to get a non-DWI outcome, especially with a prosecutor known to be less forgiving with DWI's. Nonetheless, the North Star team set out to achieve a much-needed result for the client. Focused humanizing the client - by highlighting her challenging divorce at the time, her future career and the impact to it caused by a DWI, and her proactive steps - we were able to convince the prosecutor to make a deviation and obtain this rare outcome. The North Star team fought like hell in negotiations and got this fantastic outcome for a deserving client.
