State v. Mr. M (2017)

Practice Area:Criminal Law/ DUI

Date:June 29, 2017

Description:Pima County Consolidated Justice Court: Twenty-year-old Mr. M was alleged to have committed an underage DUI, after being stopped by a Department of Public Safety trooper after an alleged traffic violation. If found guilty, Mr. M could have been required to serve jail time, install an ignition interlock device, complete alcohol  classes, pay a fine, and lose his driver’s license for two years. Mr. Goebel was able to convince the prosecutor to offer a reduced plea offer to Minor in Possession of Alcohol. This prevented Mr. M from having an underage DUI on his record, avoid jail time, and he did not receive any suspension of his driving privileges.
