CASE RESULT – STATE OF TEXAS VS. L.C. – CLIENT CHARGED WITH DWI. RESULT: CASE REDUCED
L.C. was driving one day when he allegedly caused an accident with two other vehicles and allegedly fled the scene. The police found L.C. driving, noticed the damage to his vehicle, and pulled him over. L.C. was accused of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).
L.C. performed field sobriety tests and was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Galveston County, Texas.
Our firm was appointed by the court to represent L.C., and we promptly got to work. We requested and reviewed the dashcam videos and police report, immediately poked holes in the state’s case, and set the case for trial.
Before trial, because of our representation, the state offered to reduce the driving while intoxicated (DWI) case to “obstruction of a highway” (an offense committed when a person obstructs a highway, street, sidewalk, railway, waterway, elevator, aisle, hallway, entrance, or exit to which the public or a substantial group of the public has access, or any other place used for the passage of persons, vehicles, or conveyances).
L.C. took the deal. L.C. paid no fine, served no additional jail time, did no probation, does not have a DWI conviction, and his driver’s license will not be suspended. Additionally, L.C. was never charged with the hit-and-run accidents. L.C. never had to sit for a trial.
