Our office was contactedI by a former client to assist him in a Felony DUI charge out of Seminole County, Florida. Our client had 3 prior DUI convictions and was facing mandatory jail and a mandatory lifetime driver license revocation. In addition to the DUI charge, the State Attorney also charged driving on a suspended license and refusal to submit to a breath test.
Our client was alleged to have driven his vehicle in a manner consistent with impaired drivers. He was ultimately stopped for weaving outside of his lane and stopping his vehicle in an intersection causing other vehicles to swerve to avoid a accident. As part of the litigators, we recommended he enrol in counseling for alcohol addiction. We filed pre trial motions and conducted depositions. During the depositions, we were able to convince the arresting officer and State Attorney to reduce the Felony DUI to a misdemeanor reckless driving. As a result, our client was not sentenced to jail/prison and avoided the DUI lifetime driver license revocation.
