People v. OSMAR R. (FAVORABLE DWI PLEA DISPOSITION)
Charges: Driving While Intoxicated as a Felony
Court: Supreme Court Queens County (Hon. Joel Blumenfeld, J.S.C.)
Disposition: After 1 year of tedious litigation and negotiations in the face of a strong prosecution recommendation of upstate jail time for my client who had 3 prior convictions (including a prior felony DWI conviction where he had already received a 5 year probation sentence), I was able to advocate for and negotiate a plea to a second felony DWI with straight probation (no jail). The client also had a pending Violation of Probation in Suffolk County as a result of his new arrest and I was able to convince that Court to restore him to probation.
