Stay of imposition. The client blew a .21. Though it was a first-time offense, that is an awfully high reading that prosecutors rarely move off of. With an initial offer to straight plea, the North Star team worked with the client in crafting a negotiating strategy to earn a better outcome. With no legal defense, the client decided to not drive for a year while revoked and stayed stone-cold sober. Eventually, the prosecutor agreed to a stay of imposition, which means the client will only have a misdemeanor record once he successfully completes the minimum 2-years probation. On top of that, there is no jail to serve and we even avoided the DWI assessment penalty that this county likes to impose when a reading is above .16. All in all, the client is very happy to have a misdemeanor record and no jail to serve - a great result given the facts of the case.
