Wendy Schiller-Nichols recently negotiated a deal which dismissed both an OWI charge and a superdrunk charge for a client facing two OWI charges in the same county at the same. The client’s first OWI charge stemmed from a traffic stop for failure to have headlights turned on. After an OWI investigation commenced, it was determined that the client had a .22 BAC. Consequently, the prosecutor charged the client with ‘superdrunk’ OWI. Approximately a week later, the client was pulled over in the same county and charged with OWI. Making the situation more precarious, the client had one prior conviction of OWI. Due to the hard work of Wendy Schiller-Nichols, the client pled to one count of Reckless Driving and one count of OWI. This plea dismissed the superdrunk charge from his first arrest, and the OWI charge from his second arrest. The plea also prevented the client from losing his license for five years and having a total of three OWI’s on his record.
