In years gone by, I would have been disappointed with a wet reckless offer in a case like this and would have expected a non alcohol related reckless driving or "dry reckless". However, the parameters of negotiations change and we now have to make decisions to accept what is offered or go to trial. It is very tempting to take these case to jury trial, but this means more money for the client and potentially stiffer penalties if the case is lost. As a DUI Defense Attorney in Orange County, I know how difficult it can be to win an acquittal in a DUI case and clients should always consider their options carefully before deciding to put their liberty in the hands of an Orange County Jury.
