Client was involved in a traffic crash where he sideswiped another car. After the crash investigation, the police began a DUI investigation based on witness statements about his driving pattern, his eyes, and the odor of alcohol. Our client showed some balance issues but otherwise did well on field sobriety exercises and blew a .097.
Based on the nature of the crash the State denied all counteroffers for diversion and reckless driving. We set the case for trial and at 4:50 pm the day before jury selection the State offered a reckless driving amendment. Our client accepted and we resolved his case with very favorable conditions including no license suspension.
