State v. B.W.

January, 2021
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanors

Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving. The client had zero defenses - it was a straight-forward case from the State's perspective. And, making this case more challenging is that the client blew a .14 - an alcohol concentration level that almost never results in a plea to an amended count because it's closer to double the legal limit than the actual legal limit. On top of that, a DWI plea could have led to serious consequences for the client's military career. Despite this, the North Star team worked with the client to get him to a much better position for negotiations. He completed proactive steps and demonstrated with good conduct that this is more of an one-time incident than the start of a bad run. Through strenuous and smart negotiations, the client obtained this truly rare result and it saved his military career.
