State v. K.R.

July, 2022
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanors

Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving. Client blew .12 and had no legal defenses to fight the case. Typically, the cut-off to plea to a non-DWI is .10. If you blow above it, good luck trying to get a non-DWI conviction via negotiations. And that was how the prosecutor initially reacted. But, the client could NOT have a DWI conviction on her record for fear of losing her career and even licensing. There was a lot at stake, to say the least. The North Star team worked with the client to get all of the information needed to explain her unique situation and then advised on proactive steps that would better position her for making a strong pitch for the outcome needed. Thankfully, after many hearings and many communications/negotiations with the prosecutors office, we finally got the outcome needed. Making it even sweeter - no jail or community service to complete, and probation to the court. A truly incredible outcome achieved, once again, by North Star.
