Second Offense DWI reduced to Careless and Imprudent Driving. Refusal revocation dismissed.

A Maryland Heights man was accused of DWI after allegedly evading police, failing all field sobriety tests, blowing over the legal limit on a PBT, and refusing a breathalyzer at the station. We were able to persuade the prosecutor to drop the DWI to a careless and imprudent because of issues with the administration of the field sobriety tests and the fact that our client was an immigrant and faced possible deportation if convicted. In addition, Client’s one year revocation for refusing a breathalyzer was dropped based on arguments we made regarding a language barrier.
