In some states, it’s possible for a motorist who’s accused of operating a vehicle while under the influence (OUI), 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 Connecticut. The benefits of pleading to a wet reckless are simple: The penalties for a reckless driving conviction are generally less severe than those for operating under the influence.
If you’ve been arrest for driving under the influence, talk to an experienced local OUI attorney. The facts of every case are different. A qualified OUI lawyer can talk to you about what the possibilities are for your case.
