State v. R.N.

April, 2022
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Plea to an amended count to a misdemeanor 4th Degree DWI. This was a first-time offense with a high reading - .20. Usually when the reading is so high - .04 above the .16 threshold to make it a gross misdemeanor - obtaining a plea to a reduced misdemeanor DWI is very difficult. The North Star team capitalized on a unique issue that it raised (but would unlikely be successful as a legal challenge) to negotiate this outstanding outcome for the client. She is thrilled that her record now shows a misdemeanor outcome consistent with a true first-time DWI, which will be much more manageable for her explaining it away during background checks.
