DUI with injuries. Client was charged with "DUI with Injuries" following an accident. Factors in this case were tough given a prior DUI and a reported BAC of .16 in this most recent event. Had this resulted in conviction, the client could have severed upwards of 17 years in prison and received 2 strikes on their record. The case went to trial and resulted in a mistrial, the jury voted 8 to 4 for not guilty and then after further deliberation, voted 9 to 3 for not guilty, resulting in a mistrial. Thereafter, rather than go back to trial, the prosecution negotiated and the case was dropped to a misdemeanor DUI.
