STATE v. C.C.
Maximum Sentence: 364 days jail; $2,000.00 fine
Mandatory Minimum Sentence: 48 hours jail; $500 fine; 90 day loss of license
Synopsis: Officer followed the Client as he drove home from a local bar. Client pulled into a parking area after being signaled to stop by the officer. Video showed that client was operating erratically and client performed poorly on the field sobriety tests. Client made admissions to drinking including the admission that he was too impaired to drive.
Result: Plea agreement that included the mandatory minimum fine and a 90 day loss of license that ran concurrently to the previously imposed BMV suspension. The allegation of a specific BrAC was stricken, thus saving the Client from serving any jail time.
