Attorney Karen Phillips entered Judge Reincke's courtroom in Eaton County, Michigan with her client for Sentencing on an OWI 1st offense prepared to prove to Judge Reincke that her client was rehabilitated.  The probation officer had recommended 10 days jail.  The client had shown not only significant progress in her path to sobriety, but also had support of her church family and friends ready to testify on her behalf.  

Judge Reincke commended not only the client, but Attorney Phillips for being prepared.  "This was a first offense with a client that has made significant progress in her path to sobriety by being introspective and determining what, if any, was her healthy relationship with alcohol."  Said Ms. Phillips about the success. The client left the court room without jail time being imposed.
