as a former DUI prosecutor now a DUI

defense attorney people ask me all the

time how can I convince

- cuter - cut me a break and dismiss my

DUI case well today I want to address

two misconceptions or two things that a

lot of people think would be persuasive

to DA's but really are unlikely to

convince them to dismiss your DUI the

first is showing that you have good

moral character so maybe you've never

been in trouble before maybe you were an

honor student maybe you've got a great


maybe you provide for your family maybe

you coach Little League

maybe you contribute to charity maybe

you're a veteran and you served in

combat and you have PTSD

unfortunately the prosecutor usually

does not care too much about these
