State v. A.S., July, 2015
Charges: Fourth Degree DWI
Resolution: Plea to misdemeanor failure to signal traffic offense and the DWI charges were dismissed. After Mr. Gempeler filed motions challenging the stop and probable cause for arrest, the prosecutor made an offer the client could not refuse because the legal motions were far from guarantees. In addition to getting only a misdemeanor traffic offense on her record, the client was not sentenced to complete any jail time, do any community service, and did not even have to do the one-day alcohol education program that is typically required for all DWIs. The client also avoided the probation fee when supervised probation was limited to five months.
