My client was observed by the police to swerve all over the road and to finally lose control and get his vehicle stuck in a ditch. He was extremely intoxicated. He was on probation for an assault charge. He had a lengthy criminal record.


He pleaded guilty to only one charge and received a fine of only $1500. No insurance alone is a fine of $2875. All other charges were withdrawn.
