Plea Bargaining in Forsyth County DUI cases

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

Forsyth County police make frequent DUI arrests. Many of the accused plea bargain to the charges, despite the consequences of a DUI conviction.

A Forsyth County DUI can have three possible outcomes: (1) dismissed or reduced, (2) guilty verdict or plea, (3) not guilty verdict or acquittal at trial.

Scenario one, dismissal of the DUI charge is the best possible outcome for a DUI case. This is hard to get, but it is possible if the charges are completely baseless. An experienced DUI lawyer can oftentimes get DUI charges reduced to reckless driving offenses. Mr. Lawson has had great success in getting DUI charges reduced for his clients.

Scenario two is a common outcome for a DUI case. Many drivers charged with DUI enter a plea bargain with the Forsyth County government attorney. While a plea of guilty is a DUI conviction, a DUI lawyer can still be instrumental in helping to negotiate a just plea.

Scenario three is a result of challenging the DUI and taking it to trial. DUI attorneys working for Richard Lawson have had great success in taking these cases to trial and getting not guilty verdicts from the jury. This of course, is complete vindication from the DUI charges.
