Third Offense DWI Avoids Jail Time
Outcome: Mr. Abate examined the full driver history and determined that between the first and second and second and third offenses there were more than 10 years elapsed. Thus, Mr. Abate employed a portion of the law which permitted the prosecutor to step down the offense from a third offense to a second offense and avoid the mandatory incarceration for a third offense.
Third offense DWI cases carry a mandatory 6 months in Jail. In this case, having an attorney who understood the DWI statute was the difference between going to jail and losing a job. The client was also able to avoid 8 years of drivers suspension.
