State v. N.H., May, 2017
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor
Resolution: Plea to an amended charge of 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor. This was a first-time offense, with an elevated reading of .20. The City's policy of departing to a misdemeanor DWI on these types of cases is .18 - meaning, we had no business getting this agreement, per "policy". But, the team at North Star understands policy can be overcome with the proper approach. Client was thrilled at the opportunity to get this misdemeanor result.
