Recently, the Baltimore County DUI Attorney Ross W. Albers represented a client for his third Maryland DUI. The client had two prior driving under the influence convictions.
Towson Third DUI No Jail Time
After retaining the Law Office of Ross W. Albers, the client was immediately referred to a Maryland alcohol education program. The client also opted to install the interlock on his automobile because he refused the breathalyzer test.
As a local Baltimore County DUI Attorney familiar with the Towson district court judges, I knew what to do on our first court date. I immediately recognized that we had a great judge and advised my client that if he wanted to plead guilty this was the right judge.
My client and I met before his first court date and discussed the facts and legal defenses in his case. We reviewed the charges, police report and video footage. Ultimately, my client decided he wanted to plead guilty to driving under the influence.
The Baltimore County Assistant State’s Attorney was recommending significant jail time for my client because it was his third DWI.
However, I knew that if my client plead guilty and we postponed sentencing, then he could complete his DUI alcohol treatment. This judge is big on alcohol treatment!
Two months later at sentencing, my client received no jail time for his third DUI!
