In April of 2018, Nicole’s client was in a motor vehicle accident while driving under the influence of alcohol in Anoka County. The accident resulted in damage to another individual’s vehicle and injuries to the other driver. Her client was charged with Gross Misdemeanor Criminal Vehicular Operation and DWI.

In preparation, Nicole gathered and reviewed all of the State’s evidence. In addition, she worked with her client to prepare a packet of information which included proof of the client’s completion of a Chemical Dependency Assessment, and progress in treatment. With her diligence, Nicole was able to get the prosecutor to agree to dismiss the criminal vehicular operation charge and her client pled guilty to a DWI.

The plea reached was able to meet the client’s goals of avoiding the criminal vehicular operation charge.
