Dry & Wet Reckless Charges in San Diego
Your DUI Lawyer May Be Able to Negotiate a Plea
No drunk driving cases are the same, and your specific case may necessitate
that different actions are being taken for your best possible outcome.
In some instances, it is better for you to accept a plea bargain rather
than going to trial since the outcome of a trial may not be to your benefit.
Even further, the judge
sentencing the case has the authority to sentence you as they see fit. In some cases, your
penalties will be worse than others.
It is most important that you get the help and skill of a defense attorney
when you are facing any DUI charge.

reduced charges for many clients charged with DUI in the San Diego area for more than

going to trial, you need proven and reliable experience.
Wet Reckless vs. Dry Reckless Defense Negotiations
California allows for some people accused of
driving under the influence to reduce their charged to a wet reckless or a dry reckless. The terms
wet reckless and dry reckless refer to the involvement (wet) or lack of
involvement (dry) of alcohol in a reckless driving charge. A professional
DUI attorney can employ skilled negotiation in many cases to get DUI charges
dismissed or reduced.
Benefits of pleading guilty to a wet reckless:
If it is reduced to a wet reckless charge, your record will still show
that alcohol was involved. Additionally, if you are charged with a DUI
within the next ten years, the wet reckless charge acts as a prior DUI
conviction, thus greatly increasing your charges and penalties.
first charge reduced to a dry reckless charge is the most favorable option, as it will
not be viewed as a DUI offense should there be a subsequent DUI. This
is a very important point to consider when choosing your lawyer. You want
someone who is knowledgeable and experienced in the laws regarding DUI,
the penalties and negotiation. You want someone who is creative in building
your defense and who truly cares about you and the results of your case
on your life.
