Can I Plead to "Wet Reckless" in Indiana?
Plea bargaining a reduced charge in Indiana drunk driving cases.
In some states, it’s possible for a motorist who’s accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI), often called driving under the influence (DUI), to “plea bargain” for a lesser charge. When such a plea bargain is for a reckless driving charge, it’s sometimes called a “wet reckless.”
Plea bargaining for a wet reckless is a possibility in Indiana. The benefit of pleading to a wet reckless is simple: The penalties for a reckless driving conviction are less severe than those for operating while intoxicated.
If you’ve been arrest for driving under the influence, talk to an experienced local OWI attorney. The facts of every case are different. A qualified OWI/DUI lawyer can talk to you about what the possibilities are for your case.
