Can I get my DUI Charge reduced to Reckless Driving in South Carolina?
The consequences of a DUI conviction are severe. A drunk driving conviction will affect your driving record, obligate you to obtain SR-22 auto insurance, and may cause you to lose your job, harm your career, or lose your professional license.
Reducing a DUI Charge to Reckless Driving:
The DUI defense attorneys at the Strom law firm treat each case individually and will expose any and all weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
- Did the officer have a legitimate reason, known as reasonable suspicion, to pull you over in the first place?
- Did the officer read you your Miranda rights in the breathalyzer room?
- Did the officer inform you of implied consent?
The DUI lawyers at the Strom law firm will work to establish a strong defense against your drinking and driving charge. The stronger the defense, the more likely the prosecution will be willing to reduce your charge to reckless driving. Although a reckless driving conviction may require you to enroll in DUI classes or participate in an alcohol treatment program, this option may preserve your future.
