Richmond DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving
Recently, John Weiland of the law firm The Weiland Firm, PLC, obtained an amazing result for a client charged with DUI and Refusal in Richmond, Virginia.
After being pulled over by the police, the client did poorly on his Field Sobriety Tests and blew a .20 on the roadside breathalyzer (PBT or Preliminary Breath Test). The client then failed to provide a valid breath sample at the police station. The case was peculiar, however, in that the client had been assaulted and obtained a concussion less than an hour before he got behind the wheel. After significant preparation, Mr. Weiland was able to explain the circumstances of the client’s situation and have the Refusal charge dismissed and the DUI charge reduced to Reckless Driving with minimal penalties and no jail.
