Recovery Based Success

Facts: Client had two pending drunk driving cases. One of those cases resulted in a .21 breath test. Because of the client's commitment to recovery and continued contact with me I was able detail his voluntary treatment and recovery program for over 10 months to the court.

Maximum Penalties: 2 1/2 years in the house of corrections not less that $500 fine and not more that $5,000 dollar fine or both imprisonment and fines and license revoked for 1 year.

Outcome: Despite the client's recovery progress, the District Attorneys Office argued for a Guilty finding and a more severe sentence. Based on the strength of my client's commitment to recovery the court imposed a continuation without a finding (CWOF) the client leaves the situation without any guilty finding whatsoever.
