Last week in Gates Town Court I was able to obtain a DWAI plea for a client in his early 20’s. The original charges were the misdemeanor of DWI and speeding. He had allegedly blown a BAC of .13 after being pulled over for travelling at 85 mph on 490.
Key to the plea was my client’s willingness to participate in a program called Alive@25. This is a program for younger drivers meant to increase safety awareness and driving skills. I was lucky enough to have attended a presentation by the organization responsible for this program last year. I knew it might allow me to obtain a reduction in the charges for my client if he chose to attend.
Sometimes cases like this require creative solutions. Please contact me if you find yourself in a similar situation.
