New York DWI Attorney, Steven Brill, Negotiated a Non-Criminal Plea Bargain for Young Client who was Arrested
Client was a young, construction worker who was stopped by Port Authority Police as he was pulling into the toll plaza at the Queens Midtown Tunnel. When the police saw Ketamine bottles inside our client's car, our client was arrested and charged with driving while impaired on drugs – an A misdemeanor. After several months of plea negotiations with the Queens District Attorney's Office, a plea agreement was negotiated where the client would plead to a lesser charge Driving while Impaired (by alcohol) – a traffic infraction, not a crime. The client was sentenced to short-term license suspension (90 days) and a small fine. Most importantly, the client will have no criminal record.
