Probation Sentenced for 7 DUI Charges

Posted by Troy Slaten | Aug 29, 2013 | 0 Comments

Even when you think your DUI charges are overwhelming, an attorney can help you. Take for example rapper Too Short. He was arrested for DUI and then attempted to run from police. This was captured by police cameras and was leaked onto the internet for all to see. In total, he was charged with 7 offenses including DUI, resisting arrest and possession of MDMA. It seemed to many that he was in a lot of trouble. If convicted of all of those crimes, the rapper stood to face years in jail, steep fines and many other consequences. If you have found yourself in a similar situation and think that you have no options, call the  lawyers at Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP.

With the aid of a very good DUI lawyer, Too Short (real name Todd Anthony Shaw) plead ‘not guilty' to all charges. While he prepared for trial his lawyer worked with the prosecutor to get his client a plea bargain. They finally came to an agreement that the rapper would change his plea to ‘guilty' for the DUI and, in return, all other charges would be dismissed. He was sentenced to 3 years of probation, alcohol treatment classes and a fine. He also got to avoid going to trial and does not have to add the other charges to his record. This is a great example of how an experienced  defense attorney can assist you.

If you have been arrested for DUI in California and plan on pleading guilty, call a California attorney first. In many cases your attorney can work with the prosecutor just like in this example and get you reduced charges and preferential sentencing. Do not face a DUI arrest alone; get legal assistance from an experienced professional. You do not have to be a famous recording artist to get results like this, you only have to call Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP.
