State v. T.O.

March, 2019
Charges: 2nd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Plea to a 3rd Degree DWI. On a third time offense, the statute "mandates" 30 days in custody and an additional 60 on house arrest. With a very aggressive and strategic approach, the North Star team was able to get the prosecutor to agree to a cap of 45 days and let us argue to the Court on how that was to be served (i.e. jail or house arrest). With a strong sentencing letter submitted in advance, along with an impassioned argument at sentencing, the judge allowed the client to serve the balance of his time on house arrest. On top of that, the previously forfeited vehicle was returned to the client as well. A truly incredible and rare outcome that the North Star team achieved. This is why you need a firm like ours - we push, fight, and get outcomes that otherwise seem unobtainable, except to us.
