First Offense DUI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving
CHARGE: FIRST OFFENSE DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI - BAC Greater Than 0.15)
Attorney Matthew Marin is pleased to report that a charge of first offense DUI pending against a Client has been reduced to reckless driving in the Washington County District Court. The Client had been charged with driving under the influence after being involved in a single car accident involving a tree in June '16. After his arrest, the Client submitted to a breath test at the Police Station resulting in an allegation that his blood alcohol content was above 0.15.
We were able to fight the case and successfully negotiate a resolution of the case that involved a reduction of the charge from first offense DUI to reckless driving. The Client was sentenced to a one year filing (stay out of trouble, no arrests and automatic expungement after one year), no loss of license, twenty hours of community service, and pay court costs. If you or a loved one is facing a first offense DUI charge in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
RESULT: FIRST OFFENSE DUI CHARGE REDUCED TO RECKLESS DRIVING resulting in one year filing with no loss of license on August 31st, 2016
