New plea option for DUIs
Ordinances appearing in several McHenry County municipalities might change the way driving under the influence charges are negotiated in court.
Some DUI cases have a lack of evidence, leaving prosecutors wary of failing to get convictions at trial. Like most criminal cases, most DUI cases are resolved via pleas, and defendants and defense attorneys are hesitant to plead guilty to driving under the influence when the case is weak because of long-term consequences.
Prosecutors and defendants often settle on a reckless driving conviction during those negotiations, but that disposition is going out of vogue.
