In some states, it’s possible for a motorist who’s accused of 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.”
Unlike some other states, Illinois doesn’t prohibit plea bargaining in DUI cases. So, for someone who’s accused of drunk driving, convincing a prosecutor to reduce the charge to reckless driving or some other lesser charge is a possibility.
If you’ve been arrest for driving under the influence, talk to an experienced local DUI attorney. The facts of every case are different. A qualified DUI lawyer can talk to you about what the possibilities are for your case.
