I was told if I plead guilty to the DUI they would drop the negligent and reckless as well as the charge for driving down a one way street and violating a license restriction, leaving me only with the DUI to be punitive.
Is that better than guilty on all the charges? Of course. But not guilty on the DUI is better yet. Often people...
