A lot of clients come to me expecting that, with the snap of a finger, we should be able to turn a DUI into something like a Reckless Driving. Wisconsin has a statute, Section 967.055, that prohibits plea bargaining on the part of prosecutors and defense attorneys to amend alcohol-related offenses to non-alcohol-related offenses such as reckless driving. The only time that can be done is if the prosecutor can actually make a case to the judge that they would not be successful if they continued to prosecute their case. There are countless times when our firm has been successful in convincing prosecutors and judges alike to amend OWI violations to lesser non-alcohol-related driving offenses.
