Case #1: OWI-1st/PAC-1st (with .174 blood test) Amended to Non-Alcohol-Related Charge for CDL Client
Case #2: OWI-1st/PAC-1st (with .108 blood test) Reduced to Reckless Driving in Very Difficult County
Case #3: OWI-1st/PAC-1st (with .196 blood test) Reduced to Two Minor Traffic TicketsThis was an outcome that seemed impossible at the outset of KH's case given the allegations. Repeated lane deviations, poor performance on the filed sobriety tests captured by the officer's squad camera and a very high blood test result of .196 made this a very uphill battle. But there was one potential issue Dennis Melowski found in his careful review of all the evidence: the officer's squad video hardly showed a vehicle that was all over the road. At most, it showed some very minor deviations that appeared to occur entirely within KH's own lane of travel. Dennis believed that the officer's video did not show a sufficient basis for a traffic stop and he filed a motion to dismiss. At the hearing on Dennis' motion, prior to it even starting, Dennis was able to enlist the support of the officer himself in dropping the drunk driving charges. How? This officer is one whom Dennis has dealt with many times, and almost every occasion was favorable to Dennis' client. Rather than being dragged through the court process again with a similar outcome, both the officer and prosecutor agreed to just cut their losses by offering a plea agreement that KH simply couldn't refuse. Under the terms of the deal, the drunk driving charges were dropped. In exchange, KH agreed to plead no contest to two non-alcohol-related, minor traffic tickets: Inattentive Driving and Operating Left of Center. Aside from paying fines, KH suffered no consequences. She avoided the horrible stain of a drunk driving conviction; avoided the equally horrible ignition interlock device; and never lost her license for even a single day. Another very real result and another very satisfied client.
