State v. J.W.

November, 2017
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Client pled guilty to the 3rd Degree DWI charge. Statutory minimums call for a short spell in jail and at least 28 days on house arrest. Mr. Gempeler successfully negotiated a result in which the client received credit for mental health and chemical dependency inpatient treatment in lieu of being order to serve time in jail and house arrest. Further, the client's treatment was credited so that he did not have to complete a separate chemical dependency assessment, per the usual conditions. Finally - and this is utterly rare for gross misdemeanor DWI offenses - the client was placed on unsupervised probation to the Court, meaning he saves several hundred dollars in hidden fees and makes the 2-year probationary period much less burdensome. Considering a complete lack of any viable defenses, this outcome is remarkable.
