John Weiland of Weiland Upton recently negotiated a favorable deal for a client charged with DUI 2nd within 10 years with an elevated Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) as well as misdemeanor Hit and Run in Henrico County, Virginia. The client was an out of state resident and already had three prior DUI convictions within the last 11 years.
The likelihood of the client being granted bail was slim and the facts of the case were far from stellar. John Weiland was able to negotiate the DUI- 2nd within 10 years down to a DUI – 1st offense, saving the client two years of license suspension, extra mandatory jail time, and additional insurance increases in his home state. Our attorney was able to rapidly advance the trial date for the client, who was denied bond originally, so that he will be released shortly after the trial date, allowing him to be with his family for the holidays.
Also as terms of the plea agreement, the client received no active jail time for his hit and run charge.
