State v. T.H., January, 2019
Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor
Resolution: Plea to a creative Careless Driving record. The client blew a .11, which was .02 more than the cut-off the city prosecutor typically has for offering a careless driving conviction on first-time offenders. But, through savvy negotiating, including a great relationship with the prosecutor, the North Star team was able to obtain this incredible outcome. A creative careless means that the client will only have a careless driving conviction on his record following his successful completion of probation. This was a fantastic result for a young man that has high aspirations of traveling the country for work purposes. And it goes to show that even when the options may not present much from a defense standpoint, the North Star team knows how to create leverage points to obtain incredible results.
