    • Court Throws Out DUI Charge; Reduction to Wet Reckless - DUI Reduced to Wet Reckless

      Our client, a young man, could have faced potential jail time, significant fines and fees, probation, and a minimum of TEN YEARS of raised insurance premiums...had he not made the astute decision of HIRING the Award-Winning DUI Defense Law Firm, Coimbra Law Firm. Due to our diligent efforts VERY early on in the case, our DUI defense lawyer persuaded the prosecutor to THROW OUT the DUI charge in favor of a reduced wet reckless count.

      The young man, who works in construction, was given NO JAIL TIME, and, instead, must only fulfill some reasonable court obligations and summary probation. The resolution did NOT result in a suspension his license, which would have occurred had he been convicted of the original charges of violating Vehicle Code sections 23152(A), driving under the influence, and 23152(B), driving with a blood-alcohol-level of 0.08 % or more.

      A rare night on the town for a young working Mom could have led up to a year in jail, after she was suspected of driving while under the influence, driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08%, and in possession of cocaine. But due to the diligent advocacy of Coimbra Law, APC, our attorneys reached an amicable agreement with the Pasadena City Prosecutor: Instead of jail, our client is serving a 3-year-term on probation for only a “wet reckless.” She was originally charged with violating Vehicle Code section 23152(a), Vehicle Code section 23152(b), and Health & Safety Code section 11350(a). A wet reckless is a reduced charge; it is for driving recklessly with alcohol involved. The drug charge against our client was dismissed. Our client was also sentenced to pay a $500 fine, plus assessment fees, and to attend an alcohol diversion program, among other conditions. The woman had been celebrating a friend’s birthday and decided to stay out later because she hardly ever had the time to socialize, given the demands of her home and work life. When she was stopped by Pasadena police, she had been up for 19 hours. Signs of sleep deprivation and fatigue easily mirror the symptoms of intoxication, our attorneys argued. She was also unaware that what was tossed into her purse was a controlled substance.
