State v. M.O.

August, 2020
Charges: Careless Driving - Misdemeanor

Plea to charge as a petty misdemeanor. The client engaged in driving conduct that undoubtedly fit the bill for a Careless Driving charge - even if some attenuating circumstances existed. Compounding the driving conduct was the fact that the client had a commercial drivers license. By law, prosecutors are unable to negotiate off a traffic violation when dealing with a commercial driver. Still, the North Star team successfully negotiated the plea deal to a petty misdemeanor offense, which is a non-crime in Minnesota. Avoiding a true criminal record was crucial to the client. In doing so, he avoided any employment consequence and the North Star team assured him that the record would not lead to a loss of his commercial driving privileges. Given everything, this was a great result for a deserving client.
