Can I Plead to "Wet Reckless" in New Mexico?
Does the Land of Enchanment Permit Plea Bargains for DUIs?
No. New Mexico is one of over a dozen states that have laws prohibiting plea bargains in DUI cases -- New Mexico’s law specifically prohibits "reducing" a DWI charge to a non-alcohol related offense if the driver blows a BAC of 0.08% or greater. That said, an attorney in New Mexico may, in some circumstances, be able to assist in reducing charges or reducing penalties associated with a guilty plea for a DUI.
