Common DUI Question: Can I plead the case down to reckless driving?
This is a common question that is asked of DeGiacomo & Mikhlin, P.C., and it is understandable – no one wants an OUI conviction and all the headaches, such as classes, fines and lengthy driver’s license suspensions, that come along with it. Unfortunately, except in extremely rare circumstances, the prosecutor will not allow you to plead to a “lessor” offense. The reason for this is purely optics. Because the District Attorney is an elected official, they do not want to be seen as “soft on drunk drivers.” That includes cases that are almost impossible for them to prove. As this is the case, it is important to speak with an experienced New Bedford DUI Attorney, who can put you in the best position to succeed.
