February 17, 2011: OWI-1st Reduced to Minor Traffic Offense

During the jury trial of State of Wisconsin v. S.F., attorney Dennis Melowski damaged the State's case against his client so heavily that the prosecutor agreed to reduce the original charge of OWI-1st (with a .17 breath test result) to the minor traffic offense of Inattentive Driving. The remaining charge of PAC-1st was dismissed completely. The client paid a fine, but completely avoided an alcohol-related driving conviction and never lost his license for one day.
