March 28, 2011: OWI-1st Reduced to Two Minor Traffic Offenses

In County of B. v. M.L., the client was charged with OWI-1st (.13 blood test result), PAC-1st, Operating Left of Center and Failure to Keep Vehicle Under Control. Through some very innovative lawyering, and even more innovative negotiating tactics, what looked to initially be a very strong case case for the prosecution turned out to be anything but. In fact, after going over the head of the assigned prosecutor to the District Attorney himself, Dennis Melowski was able to negotiate a resolution where the OWI and PAC charges were completely dismissed. The client plead no contest to the two remaining minor traffic tickets and paid a small fine. The client avoided any revocation of his license and has no trace of an alcohol-related incident on  his driver record.
