No Jail on a Third Offense Michigan DUI
Bay City, Michigan
Mr. Cross represented a gentleman charged with DUI 3rd Offense and Resisting and Obstructing.
Similar to the above case, Mr. Cross determined that his client's ultimate goal was to avoid jail and a felony conviction.
Mr. Cross met with the prosecutors and negotiated a reduction to a DUI second offense. The client jumped at the opportunity to limit the conviction by pleading guilty to the second offense.
After Mr. Cross secured agreement to the reduction, and after the case was contained at the district court level, Mr. Cross requested that the defendant be made eligible for a treatment court program. He met with probation officers on several occasions and secured the agreement of probation to recommend treatment court despite the client's background on alcohol-related cases.
RESULT: NO JAIL ON A 3RD OFFENSE REDUCED TO A 2ND OFFENSE. 1 YEAR PROBATION.
