State v. R.K., February, 2019
Charges: 3rd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor
Resolution: Plea to an amended count of Careless Driving as a misdemeanor. Typically, any plea to a lesser count on a 3rd Degree DWI is to a 4th Degree - a benefit, but still a DWI. Here, Mr. Gempeler worked out the rare negotiation to a careless driving offense. What makes this outcome even more impressive is the fact that the client's prior was relatively recent and he was involved in a single-vehicle accident, street-racing towards his apartment complex. Despite comments at the time of the incident that were not favorable, Mr. Gempeler still worked the case up to proffer a post-driving consumption defense that was used to leverage this incredible result. Proof again, it's imperative to get a team that will fight hard and go the extra mile for your defense.
