State v. D.M.

October, 2022
Charges: Reckless Driving, including one count of reckless driving, street racing; Careless Driving - Misdemeanors

Stay of adjudication to the reckless driving count, with the other street racing reckless and careless driving counts dismissed. The client has a minimal fine and cannot have any careless or reckless offenses for one year in order to earn the non-conviction for this serious case. The facts were not good, to put it nicely. They involved an accident where the client's passenger was hurt and an allegation that street racing was occurring. The combination of which is often damn near impossible to overcome. Undeterred, the North Star team pushed and was creative in negotiations, including leveraging the possibility of trial, to achieve this incredible outcome.
