OWI Third Offense Reduced to Reckless Driving

While on a hunting trip in Missaukee County client was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated third offense and driving on a suspended license.

Facing up to five years in prison upon conviction, the accused engaged Attorney Duke to represent him.

During the preliminary examination Mr. Duke thoroughly cross-examined the arresting officer and the EMT technician who drew the client’s blood. After the case was bound over to the circuit court, Mr. Duke filed a motion to suppress the blood test results on the basis of an illegal search.

The case was set for trial. However, at the final pretrial Mr. Duke negotiated a resolution of the case that resulted in the felony drunk driving and DWLS charges being dismissed in exchange for a plea of guilty to a single count of reckless driving.

Mr. Duke also negotiated a sentencing agreement that provided for no jail and only six months probation.
