State v. T.P., February, 2019
Charges: 2nd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor
Resolution: Plea to a 3rd Degree DWI without any jail to be served - a departure from the statutory mandatory minimum. The client was facing second degree charges due to a prior and the presence of her young child in the car at the time of the incident. Further complicating things was the fact that she was in a single-vehicle accident. Despite these issues, the North Star team negotiated a remarkable outcome in which the mandatory minimum of 30 days to be served was ignored and she pled to a lesser degree DWI. Even the Judge was surprised by the outcome, but went along with it because of the persuasive argument and negotiation by Mr. Gempeler. The bottom line, when you think you are in a position that has no hope, our team will find it for you and get the best possible deal possible.
