State v. KH
The client was charged with DUI for the second time in 5 years. Client reported an accident after leaving the scene and driving home. The officers came to his house and arrested him for DUI after he failed field sobriety evaluations. The DUI charge was reduced to Reckless Driving because there was no evidence that the client had been drunk when driving earlier in the night – it could not be proven that he did not begin drinking once he had arrived at home. As a result, the 2nd offense DUI was reduced to Reckless Driving.
