DUI Charges Dismissed on 10/30/12 Reduced to a Speeding Ticket
Our client Kelley contacted us from out of state and advised us that she had a warrant for her arrest based on her failure to appear in court on her June 2010 DUI charges. Her bail was set at $75,000.00.
On September 20, 2012, we appeared on her behalf at the San Bernardino Superior Court and recalled her warrant. We were also able to make sure that she didn’t need to post bail. She was released on her written promise to appear.
During the course of our defense, we determined that due to certain facts that we became aware of, we would be able to file a Motion to Dismiss the charges.
As such, we filed a motion and served a copy on the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office. See the link below for a copy of the document. As you will note, the yellow highlighted portion would indicate that this was filed 15 days prior to the date our case was eventually dismissed.
On October 30, 2012, approximately two weeks after the District Attorney’s case received the Motion to Dismiss, the matter resolved.
The District Attorney agreed to dismiss the 2 misdemeanor charges and instead allow our client to plead guilty to infractions and pay a fine.
This means that the client has NO PRIOR DUI CONVICTION, NO MISDEMEANOR ON HER RECORD, NO LOSS OF HER DRIVING PRIVILEGES, NO REQUIREMENT TO ATTEND A DUI PROGRAM, NO INCREASED INSURANCE RATES BECAUSE OF A PRIOR DUI and SHE IS HAPPY.
