Second Offense DUI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving
CHARGE: SECOND OFFENSE DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (BAC Greater Than 0.15)
Attorney Matthew Marin is pleased to report that a charge of second offense DUI pending against a Client has been reduced to reckless driving in the Kent County District Court. The Client had been charged with driving under the influence for the second time within the past five years. Additionally, the results of a breath test taken at the Police Station alleged that her blood alcohol content was above 0.15. The case as charged carried with it a mandatory minimum six month jail (ACI) sentence.
We were able to fight the case and successfully negotiate a resolution of the case that involved a reduction of the charge from second offense DUI to reckless driving. The Client was sentenced to a one year probation (stay out of trouble, no arrests), drive with an ignition interlock device for one year, engage in alcohol counseling, and pay court costs. If you or a loved one is facing a second offense DUI charge in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
