Reduced: Reckless DrivingDUI 1st Offense
Client had struck the center median of Flamingo. His car was wrecked and he was sitting in the middle of the road with a bloody hand and blood clothes. The Officer’s immediately suspected alcohol and started the field sobriety tests on the Defendant. Police policed they had probable cause to do a breath test. Client blew a .280 (over three times the legal limit). When the client came to see Joel he knew his situation was impossible. He was about to lose everything he worked for, he was in the military and a DUI conviction would end his military career. The Defendant was about to be deployed to Afghanistan, and a trial would end his ability to fight for his country. Joel Mann was able to successfully delay the case for over a year for the Defendant to return to the United States. Once he was back, Joel Mann negotiated with the prosecutor and was able to get a DUI conviction off the table. Thanks to Joel the Defendant will be able to keep his military career with the reckless driving negotiation.
