Client A.H. today, received an offer of a "dry" reckless driving. She has been fighting this for almost 2 years because a DUI or any alcohol related offense would have negative consequences on her career. We tried this case to a jury and got a hung jury. The DA would not make a better offer and she knew she wanted to fight again. Fighting paid off, because, on the day of trial, the DA caved in and made a better offer, dry reckless, 1 year informal probation and a small fine.
In CA, 30% of all DUI arrests end up as something less!
I wish more clients would be as motivated to fight as A.H. was. I keep telling clients that the DA's office expects people to roll over and enter a plea. There is nothing wrong with fighting and there is a real chance that you will come out with a better deal. If you plead guilty, you will be guilty. Fighting is your only chance to end up with something better.
