Under age DUI clients avoid mandatory one year license loss

Attorney Welsh represented a client charged with an under age 21 DWI. The client failed the field sobriety tests and then blew four times the legal limit for someone under age 21. Result: The DWI charge was dismissed. The client pleaded guilty to non-alcohol related charge of negligent driving.

In another case, the police came upon a vehicle full of people under the age of 21.  Police smelled alcohol and marijuana and found numerous cans of beer in car. Attorney Welsh’s client admitted to drinking beer, had bloodshot glassy eyes, and smelled of marijuana. The client was charged with DWI. Result: The DWI charge was dropped by the State and the client pled guilty to a non-alcohol related charge, avoiding a mandatory one year license loss and a DWI conviction.
