Hanover County, Virginia DUI / DWI for CDL Driver reduced to a minor traffic violation
John Weiland of Weiland Upton, PLC, Attorneys at Law, recently represented a CDL holder charged with a Driving While Intoxicated Class 1 Misdemeanor in Hanover County, Virginia.
Due to the client’s status as a CDL holder, a DUI conviction would have a serious detrimental effect on his ability to drive, thereby affecting his current job and any hopes at future employment.
Mr. Weiland prepared a strategy for the best possible outcome in the case. In court, Mr. Weiland negotiated with the police officer and prosecutor that his client deserved a reduction due to legal issues with the case.
Mr. Weiland ultimately convinced the prosecutor to reduce the DUI all the way down to a minor violation of Improper Driving which is not a serious moving violation for CDL holders.
