State v. N.R.

July, 2021
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor

Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving. While this is a common outcome for a first-time DWI, it is NOT common for cases involving a .14 BrAC, which is what this client blew at the station. Almost always, anything above a .10 or .11 (if the prosecutor is being particularly generous) leads to a plea to a misdemeanor DWI. But, the North Star team is never deterred by this unwritten rules of the practice and always willing to give it our best effort to get the atypical outcome. And, here, with our fight and strategy, we achieved this truly amazing outcome and the client is beyond thrilled, knowing the long odds in getting it.
