DUI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving in Providence District Court
CHARGE: DUI (FIRST OFFENSE - BAC BETWEEN 0.10 AND 0.15)
At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq., Inc., we are pleased report that a charge of DUI (Between 0.10 and 0.15) has been reduced to Reckless Driving as part of a negotiated plea agreement in the Providence District Court. Our Client had been arrested and charged with driving under the influence. After his arrest, he had submitted to a chemical breath test at the Police Station which purported his blood alcohol content to be between 0.10 and 0.15. After a thorough examination of the case and the evidence brought forth by the Police Department, we were able to negotiate a resolution of the charge that avoided a DUI conviction and minimized our Client's loss of license. This negotiated agreement was due, in large part, to procedural and other errors committed by the arresting officer and highlighted by our aggressive representation. After extensive pre-trial negotiations, we were able to secure a reduction of the DUI charge to reckless driving. The reckless driving charge was Filed for one year. As part of the plea agreement, our Client was required to surrender his license for 30 days. If you or a loved one is facing a DUI charge or a Refusal to Submit to A Chemical Test charge in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
RESULT: DUI CHARGE REDUCED TO RECKLESS DRIVING and the case Filed for One Year with a 30 day loss of license on November 23rd, 2015.
