Young woman is contacted by police and ultimately charged with DWI. The case against her was strong. The pending court charge prevented her from pursuing her chosen employment because the employer would not allow someone with an active case or an active probation to work. Counsel suggests a course of having the woman do positive things to lessen the severity of her punishment. Through negotiation and mitigation counsel secured a jail time offer of 8 days in jail. Counsel advised the woman regarding working in jail and receiving good-time credit. The woman was in jail Wednesday, Thursday and was released late Friday. She was able to start work on the following Monday.
