State v. J.S.

December, 2021
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Stay of imposition, reducing the conviction to a misdemeanor upon his successful completion of probation. Client was denied service at a liquor store and drove home mightily impaired. After arrest, he blew a .31. Clearly, he was suffering from alcoholism. But, thankfully, he used this negative and turned it into a positive. He completed lengthy inpatient, intensive outpatient, and then outpatient treatment. Achieved sobriety and even became a speaker at the treatment center. The North Star team leveraged all of these proactive steps and a strong legal argument surrounding the stop to negotiate what will ultimately be a misdemeanor level conviction. The client is thrilled he had the North Star team fighting for him at every opportunity to get him this incredible result.
