A 25-year-old warehouse manager was charged with an OVWI after a single-car accident. When the police arrived, the individual was far from the vehicle, but holding the car keys.

Hessler Law PC criminal defense attorneys argued that someone else was operating the vehicle, and since the officers could not prove that our client was driving, we accepted a plea to public intoxication. This kept an OVWI off their record, which preserved their license and is a lot easier to manage.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
