Plea to an amended count of Failing to Drive with Due Care as a petty misdemeanor. The client's driving conduct certainly warranted the charge - erratic driving that led her to striking numerous vehicles when she was unsuccessfully navigating an alley and narrow road. The blood test did not find anything in her system, though the driving conduct certainly pointed to something that should have been discovered. Nonetheless, with no legal defense, the North Star team successfully negotiated this great outcome for a young client who has a bright future. With this outcome, she avoids a careless driving conviction that could lead to the termination of her insurance and increased premiums, and, most importantly, does not result in a criminal conviction. A petty misdemeanor is not considered a crime under Minnesota law. The client, therefore, maintains her perfect record and is back on track for her future.
