State v. T.B.

January, 2023
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor

Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving. Another great outcome for a deserving client. But, what makes this particularly unique are two things - first, the client blew a .113/.120, which is typically too high to negotiate it down to a non-DWI conviction (for non-North Star attorneys that is), and second, the client had a prior DWI within a few years before this case that was also resolved in a manner that did not involve a DWI conviction or alcohol-related loss of license record (thanks to North Star's efforts in that case). Point being, having a prior DWI - even though it didn't result in a conviction - usually makes subsequent ones that much harder to resolve. Thankfully, the North Star team worked with the client, established immediate rapport with a prosecutor they haven't had much experience with due to him being up north in a jurisdiction we simply don't travel to frequently (though, that clearly did not hinder our efforts), and was able to negotiate this incredible outcome for the client. He is thrilled he has North Star in his back pocket should he ever need us again.
