Reducing DUI to Reckless Driving
A defendant charged with drunk driving may have the case reduced to reckless driving. The defendant would still have to fulfill the standard penalties, such as attending DUI School and a victim impact panel. However, the benefits of pleading down are worth considering:
- Defendants are less likely to be turned down for job opportunities if they have a reckless driving conviction, than if they have a DUI.
- Defendants can avoid harsher penalties if they are charged with a DUI in the future. (The penalties for successive DUI convictions come with more serious punishment.)
