Mike Brandt’s client was charged in the City of Coon Rapids for Driving While Impaired. Because his client had a DWI about 1 ½ years earlier, Mike’s client was looking at a gross misdemeanor charge with a mandatory minimum of 30 days in jail. In preparing the case, Mike filed motions to challenge the police officer’s decision to have the client get out of the vehicle and perform Field Sobriety Tests, take a Preliminary Breath Test, and arrest her. Prior to the start of the contested hearing, the State agreed to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor and agreed that Mike’s client would not have to serve any jail time. Based upon that negotiation, Mike’s client was placed on probation for 1 year and her only condition was to pay a small fine and stay out of trouble.
