STATE v. A.M. pt. 2
Summary: Following a successful BMV hearing, we still had the criminal charges to deal with.
Mandatory Minimum Penalty: 48 hours jail; $500.00 fine plus surcharges; 150 day loss of license
Maximum Penalty: 364 days jail; $2,000.00 fine plus surcharges; 7 month loss of license
Result: We won the BMV hearing due to the officer failing to conduct a full 15 minute wait period. As a result of our success at the BMV, the DA agreed to dismiss the OUI in return for a plea of guilty to a charge of Driving to Endanger. The client was thrilled as a conviction would have cost the client his / her career.
