How We Get DUIs Reduced To Reckless Driving

A DUI conviction can ruin a person's life. It can also result in hefty fines and fees that can add up quickly. But there is hope. Sometimes we can get charges reduced to reckless driving. Read below for more information.

The First Step Is Getting Help.

If you've been charged with a DUI, you need to take immediate steps to get help. You should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. An attorney will be able to explain how the law works and what options you have. They will also be able to advise you on whether or not you qualify for a reduction in charges.

You Cannot Do This Yourself.

There are two ways to reduce your charge to reckless driving: 1) You can plead guilty to reckless driving; 2) You can fight the case and try to prove that you were not at fault. In either case, you must hire a lawyer who specializes in DUI cases.

You Need An Attorney Who Has Experience

If you choose to plead not guilty, you will need an attorney who has experience with DUI cases. This means that he or she should have handled multiple cases similar to yours before. They should also be able to explain the consequences of pleading guilty to reckless driving.

We May Be Able to Reduce Charges.

You may be eligible for reduced charges if you meet certain criteria. First, you must not have any prior convictions for drunk driving. Second, you must have a BAC less than.08 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Third, you must have had no previous arrests for DUI. Fourth, you must have been cooperative during the investigation. Fifth, you must have been truthful when asked questions by police officers. Sixth, you must have been honest about your drinking habits. Finally, you must have been sober if you were on pretrial release.

Don't Give Up Hope.

If we qualify you for reduced charges, we may receive an offer from the prosecutor's office. This means that you will need to enter into a plea agreement with the prosecutor. In exchange for pleading guilty to reckless driving, the prosecutor will dismiss the DUI charge. Home
