Another good result for a client today in Rochester City Court charged with Driving While Intoxicated. The client in question was stopped on an allegation that he was following another vehicle too closely, and was ultimately charged with DWI after having submitted a breath test that showed a purported result of .13. Following proceedings in the case and my negotiations with the District Attorney’s Office, I was able to secure a plea for my client to the non-criminal traffic violation of Driving While Ability Impaired with a sentence of a Conditional Discharge. The client was thus able to avoid having a criminal conviction on his record and a revocation of his driver’s license. Good way to end the week, I would say.
