Clients DUI With Injury Charge Reduced to Wet-Reckless With No Jail Time
DUI With Injury
My client was charged with a misdemeanor DUI causing injury in San Mateo County. My client was witnessed by several motorists whom he passed on the roadway to be nodding or dozing off while he accelerated past them at a high rate of speed in the oncoming traffic lane. My client drove his vehicle off an embankment and in the process clipped an elderly woman on her elbow with his side mirror. My client admitted to officers that he was taking at least 8 different prescription medicines, many of which would cause drowsiness. However, the officers also suspected that my client was under the influence of a central nervous system stimulant. My client submitted to a blood test for the detection of drugs and alcohol. Despite the prosecution's strong case for a DUI we were able to get my client a wet reckless and no jail time.
