DUI reduced to Reckless Driving - DUI
Client was stopped for going over 100 mph on Atlantic Blvd. over the Intracoastal bridge from Jacksonville to Atlantic Beach. He admitted to several alcohol drinks and was arrested for DUI. After months of litigation, although the State's case was solid, we showed that our client hadn't been in trouble before, he was active within his community and at the time of driving, he was distraught because it was the first anniversary of the death of his son. He had been despondent and depressed. He was honest with the officers and sincerely remorseful for his actions. The State reduced the charges.
