JULY 11, 2013: OWI-1ST WITH .23 BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVEL REDUCED TO RECKLESS DRIVING
Imagine the following: a driver behind the wheel passed out; an admission to drinking; failed field sobriety tests; and a blood alcohol level of .23. These facts would flummox most lawyers. But helping our clients out of such a situation is how our firm has earned its reputation. These were the circumstances that NPR presented to Attorney Sarvan Singh when they met one afternoon in November. NPR thought his situation was hopeless. And it was taking its toll on NPR, who was losing sleep. He placed his hope in Sarvan and was not disappointed. Sarvan filed motion upon motion challenging the stop and arrest. When that didn't work, Sarvan focused his attention on the upcoming trial. As the trial date approached, Sarvan developed a novel defense for NPR and a roadblock for the prosecutor. Faced with the possibility of losing at trial, the prosecutor quickly agreed to amend the OWI to a Reckless Driving. After nearly a year, NPR can now finally relax.
