Keeping a clean record...

This morning a young college aged woman stood before the Court facing up to 180 days in jail and a misdemeanor conviction for aggravated speeding 26+ mph.  The attorney’s at D&O stood by her side, and advocated to the State that our client was a hard working college student who regretted her mistake.  After some back and forth, the State agreed to completely dismiss one of the violations and downgraded the misdemeanor criminal offense to a petty traffic offense.  Our client received court supervision, and a small fine.   The grateful young lady was thrilled, and able to go back to college today without a misdemeanor conviction on her record.
