In this complicated case, Michael’s client, a prominent television producer, was arrested for his 3rd and 4th DUI’s within a 5 month period. Of course, the 4th DUI would have constituted a felony. Aggravating the situation even more was the fact the 3rd DUI involved an accident and the 4th included a .24 BAC. Michael negotiated a favorable settlement of the 3rd DUI. He thereafter convinced the prosecutor in a different courthouse to reduce the 4th DUI to a misdemeanor drunk in public charge and settle the case for probation and community service. As a result, Michael’s client avoided a felony, a prison sentence and spent only 1 night in jail.
