The best way to get a DUI reduced to something that’s not a DUI … For example, a reckless operation … is to make sure you haven’t done it before. Typically, if the facts are not egregious and you have a good lawyer, a good lawyer can negotiate getting a DUI amended to something that’s not a DUI. Typically in Ohio, it’s been my experience if it’s a reckless operation, a misdemeanor to the fourth degree, they’ll still require you to do a three day driver’s intervention program, not jail. Also, they’ll make you pay some fines and fees, and place you on a short term of probation. The thing about getting a charge reduced to reckless operation, or something that’s not a DUI, is you won’t have a DUI on your record. This is not child’s play. You need someone that has the knowledge, training and experience to properly fight and defend you on this case. Let the law offices of Steven R. Adams protect you and keep you from further embarrassment, and help keep that treasured job that you worked so long and hard for.
