DUI & Criminal Division

Defendant was charged with racing. The defendant was adamant that he was only speeding and the car next to him was also speeding. The defendant had his brother and mother in the car with him. The police report was very similar to the defendant’s story, he noticed two cars speeding next to each other very late at night, and decided to charge both with racing. With the facts of the case not appearing to be in doubt, we negotiated with the prosecutors to drop this charge from criminal racing which carries with it a mandatory minimum 500$ fine, and a 1 year driver’s license suspension.
