State v. I.T.

October, 2022
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Dismissed on the morning of trial. The client was wrongly accused of being in physical control of a vehicle, when he instead was merely a passenger with his buddy as they were using the vehicle to stay warm and find a sober ride home. Armed with a strong defense for trial, the client refused all offers, even when they kept improving on the doorstep of trial. Ready for his day in court and for a jury to find in his favor, the State finally dismissed the case. Understandably, a huge win for a deserving client. And it goes to show, being prepared and willing to take on a trial can lead to great results, even without a trial actually starting.

Update: The North Star team successfully litigated the implied consent license revocation, arguing the client was not in physical control of the vehicle. The Judge agreed and gave the client back his driving privileges and his driving record will not have the equivalent of a DWI on his record. This is a complete win on all fronts by North Star.
