Q: 3 priors, sentenced ,& now blew 0.08. wondering what he looking at for sentencing WithNo tolerance law,
Could this be dropped to wet/reckless?
A: much more info is needed.
what you are doing is like asking a doctor to diagnose a condition without history, blood tests, imaging etc
William Joseph Duffy agrees with this answer
A: It is possible to negotiate a wet reckless if the evidence supports it. However, a defendant with three prior convictions for DUI who is arrested for a fourth, is less likely to gain a more favorable negotiated disposition. If you are charged with a fourth DUI within 10-years you could be facing a felony DUI charge and an extensive jail or short prison term. I advise retaining a qualified lawyer who has extensive experience with defending DUI cases.
A: If you are looking at a 4th offense in 10 years you are likely looking at a felony DUI which is significantly more serious, it also sounds like you are still on probation from one (or, more) of the earlier offences. Depending on the facts of your case you might be looking at over a year in jail. You really should contact a local DUI defense attorney to discuss the facts of your case, possible defenses and likely outcomes.
