Eaton County OWI Case Closed as Careless Driving

On Behalf of | May 20, 2019 | Case Results, Criminal Defense, Firm News, OWI, Traffic

Recently, an individual in Eaton County found themselves in some trouble when they blew .11% and .12% results for a BAC (blood alcohol content) test. As a result, they were charged with OWI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated). Wanting to avoid the consequences that stem from a conviction for such an offense, they reached out to a Lansing criminal defense lawyer at DeBruin Law PLLC for help.

Attorney Tiffany DeBruin immediately got to work on the client’s case. After reviewing the dash camera and body-worn camera footage, she spoke with the prosecutor and informed them of her intent to file a motion to suppress.

After reviewing the issues attorney DeBruin raised regarding the video footage, the prosecutor agreed to amend the client’s charges to a civil infraction of careless driving. After the paid a $205 fine, the case was closed.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
