State v. L.V.

January, 2020
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor

Plea to an amended count of failing to drive with due care. In addition to pleading to such a low criminal charge and avoiding the DWI, the client was placed on probation to the court, and had no time to serve and a minimal fine. Without a true defense, but compelling underlying facts, the North Star team leveraged a pending trial, some proactive steps by the client, and its good relationship with the prosecutor to eventually obtain this great outcome. The client was thrilled to walk away with essentially a traffic ticket, not to mention avoiding a careless driving (the standard non-DWI outcome most defenders seek), which would still have impacted her insurance rates.
