Commonwealth v. D.B. - Felony DUI - REDUCED to Misdemeanor
Client was charged with DUI, 3rd offense (felony) and refusing to give a breath or blood sample, 3rd offense. Client performed fair on field sobriety tests, but still made some mistakes. The police officer's stop of client's car was questionable. Using the weaknesses in the prosecutor's case, we successfully negotiated a plea agreement for misdemeanor DUI and refusal, 1st offense (non-criminal). Client still lost his license, but avoided a felony conviction and 90 days of mandatory jail time.
