    .18 Blood, reduced and not guilty!
    Description:
    My client was charged with DUI with a .18 blood test, and was facing a possible lifetime loss of his commercial driving privilege due to a very old prior DUI. After negotiating with the DA the I was able to get the driving under the influence charge reduced to a wet reckless and to have my client found not guilty, at court trial, of driving with a .08% or above charge blood alcohol. Thus, the DMV administrative suspension of his license was made moot and he did not lose his driving privilege at all. His long time career as a commercial truck driver, his livelihood and effectively his home were saved.
