how often are reckless driving pleas available for medication induced dwis
The law prohibits ADA's from reducing or dismissing DWIs unless there is some defect in the case that would prevent the DA from getting a conviction.
So as a reduced plea on its own, it is very unlikely. If there is some problem with the State's case it is possible. I strongly suggest that your contact a DWI attorney who practices in the county where you are charged. He or she will know the local DA's tolerance for reducing charges and what the best way to guide you through the case will be.
You need to ask a lawyer that specifically practices in Chatham County to get the best answer on this.
Use Avvo to find the best criminal defense attorney in your area. DWI's are about the hardest thing to reduce or dismiss (as a former prosecutor, I can tell you that I used to prefer losing a case than having to reduce one). Your local attorney will know the ins and outs of your situation. Best of luck!
