Reckless Driving While Intoxicated Attorney
Not every DWI arrest leads to a conviction. Any one of a number of factors could result in a DWI charge being dismissed or reduced to a lesser, nonalcohol driving offense.
For example, if the arresting officer makes a procedural mistake or there is some other irregularity in the evidence, the prosecutor may offer to reduce a DWI charge to a reckless driving charge. While a reckless driving offense carries points and a fine, it is a far better outcome than a DWI conviction.
Before you decide to plead guilty to DWI, you should speak with a DWI defense attorney.

What Is A Wet Reckless?
The phrase “wet reckless” does not appear in Missouri statutes, nor is there any specific procedural provision for this outcome. Nevertheless, prosecutors routinely offer wet reckless pleas to people facing DWI charges.
From society’s point of view, a wet reckless outcome disposes of a DWI case and puts the offending driver on notice that such behavior is not acceptable. For the driver, a wet reckless plea enables him or her to avoid a DWI conviction, license suspension, a fine and a possible jail sentence.
