Can I Plead to "Wet Reckless" in Arkansas?

Plea bargaining a reduced charge in Arkansas drunk driving cases.

The term, “wet reckless,” is used to describe a reduced plea arrangement made by a driver arrested for driving while intoxicated. The term is slang, meaning that the driver has “pleaded down” to a reckless driving charge involving alcohol, an infraction that typically carries fewer obligations, punishments, and costs than a traditional DUI. Arkansas is one of over a dozen states that prohibit plea bargains in DUI cases and for that reason, a wet reckless plea is usually not permitted in Arkansas. That said, an attorney in Arkansas may, in some circumstances, be able to assist in reducing charges or reducing penalties associated with a guilty plea for a DUI.
