State v. D.P., September, 2016
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor
Resolution: Client pled guilty to a misdemeanor Careless Driving. The DWI case was dismissed in its entirety and the city tab-charged the Careless Driving. This means the client has a clean break and dismissal from the DWI and can tell prospective employers that his DWI was dismissed. Additionally, the terms of the sentence are minimal - $100 fine and no jail. What's more, the client can fight the implied consent revocation, meaning he can stave off the year-long revocation resulting from the high reading. This is an incredible result. Needless to say, the client is thrilled with the result, particularly in being able to say the DWI was dismissed. It's the attention to these little details that separates North Star Criminal Defense from the rest.
