May 19, 2011: OWI-1st Reduced to Non-Traffic Ordinance Violation

In Town of B. v. M.P., the client's original charge of OWI-1st (.12 test result) was reduced to a municipal ordinance violation that was non-traffic related. The remaining charge of PAC-1st was dismissed. The client paid a fine, but otherwise suffered no consequences, including no trace of this incident on his driver record. This was critical for this client given his employment as an over-the-road truck driver for the past 23 years.
