Is it possible to get a felony reduced to a misdemeanor after sentencing?

The gap between his first and second was not relevant under the old "4th offense within 5 years" felony charge. The relevant gap was between the third offense conviction and the arrest for the fourth. If there is a discrepancy there, consult post-conviction counsel.

The law didn't require all prior OWIs fall within 5 years. The law required the previous offense to be within 5 years of the 4th. It sounds like that occurred in this case.
