Aggravated DUI Reduced to a Standard DUI

Aggravated DUI Reduced to a Standard DUI

An attorney for The Weiland Firm, PLC recently was able to get an aggravated DUI reduced to a non-aggravated, standard DUI. Our client was charged with a second offense DUI. The client was facing significant punishment including a very substantial fine, a significant active jail sentence, and a three year license suspension, among other things.

She was pulled over for failing to use her turn signal, performed poorly on a series of field sobriety tests and blew a .12 on the breath test. Our attorney found some minor potential legal defenses, and through extensive negotiations with the Commonwealth’s Attorney was able to get the charge reduced from a second offense DUI to a first offense DUI. This was very significant because the client did not serve any active jail time and only had her license restricted for one year.
