Pleading Down to a Wet Reckless

Plea bargains are complicated legal options that sometimes present people with a good opportunity to avoid strict punishments in exchange for a lighter sentence. In particular, people facing DWI charges may be able to plead this charge down to a charge of “reckless driving involving alcohol”. These charges are more commonly known as wet reckless charges.

If you’ve been arrested for DWI and there is substantial evidence available against you, you may want to think about what plea bargain options are available. With help from an experienced and reliable advisor, you may be able to have the charges against you drastically reduced. For more information, contact a Raleigh drunk driving lawyer at the Law Office of Jim Black today by calling 919-600-4609.

When Can I Plead Down to a Wet Reckless?

A plea bargain can reduce the charges against a person to something less serious, reducing possible legal penalties. In fact, a wet reckless charge or conviction can help a person keep their permanent record looking better, as this is a preferable charge to a DWI. A person may be able to plead down to a wet reckless under some of the following circumstances:

  • No prior DWIs
  • No one was injured and no property was damaged in the incident in question
  • The driver’s BAC was very near the legal limit

In these instances, a person may be able to significantly reduce what penalties they may face by trying to get their charges brought down to reckless driving involving alcohol.
