DUI – Amended to Reckless Driving
Client was involved in a single car accident. Client submitted to a field sobriety test and a portable breath test where Client blew a .088. Client was taken into custody and while at the police station, Client refused to take the chemical test and was subsequently charged with a DUI and Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test. At the first pre-trial conference at the Kent County Courthouse, Attorney Barrett negotiated an amendment to a Reckless Driving charge AND the Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test was dismissed at the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. The amendment allowed the Client to avoid a criminal conviction and save thousands of dollars in fines, costs, and fees.
