This past year we represented a 20-year-old WWU student who was charged with DUI and minor in possession of alcohol. Our client was facing mandatory jail time, 5 years of probation, and heavy fines and fees.
SOLUTION & RESULT:
We pointed out legal and evidentiary problems with the case to the prosecutor, who took our analysis and our client’s lack of any prior history into account. The case was ultimately resolved with no jail, 1-year probation, and a reduction of the DUI to Reckless Driving and a dismissal of the possession charge.
