Mike Brandt’s client was charged with a Fourth Degree DWI in Anoka County for testing at an alcohol level of 0.11. While this high of a reading is typically outside of the range where the charge can be reduced, Mike had his client take proactive steps before going to court, such as completing a chemical dependency assessment, completing the recommended class, and attending a MADD Victim Impact Panel. Based upon all of that information, as well as issues Mike had pointed out with regards to issues in the case, Mike was able to negotiate the charge down from a DWI to a Careless Driving. That negotiation prevented Mike’s client having a DWI on his criminal record, which will help greatly in the future employment of Mike’s client.
