Client was charged with driving while license revoked in an Oakland County District Court. He was revoked for multiple DUI’s. He admitted that he had been drinking to the officer but blew below the legal limit and therefore was not charged with a drinking and driving offense.

Result: Client plead guilty to driving while license revoked and was sentenced to probation. While the charge was not reduced, this was still a successful result, since the judge he was in front of has a strong tendency to sentence individuals to jails with similar facts.

Client was pulled over and received a ticket for speeding 16-20 (4 point offense) over and no proof of insurance. Client was able to provide proof of insurance at the formal hearing.

Result: Both of the original civil infractions were dropped. Client pled responsible to double parking which is a 0 point civil infraction.

Client was charged with OWI - High BAC. His BAC was .30. As a condition of bond the client was ordered to test 3 times a day via Soberlink and not to drink at all. He tested positive for alcohol about a week before sentencing.

Result: The original charged was dismissed and the client plead to operating while visibly impaired. The Judge was very tempted to throw the client in jail at sentencing because of the bond violation, but because we had counseled him to start counseling and AA the judge gave him 12 months of probation.
