Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. Were there any additional facts or findings which may have been overlooked by the State, when they filed the charges? Was this just a DUI and the basis for the stop was speeding?
no just the dui and speeding
Chris, thank you for that additional information. The State can amend or add additional charges, if there is a legal basis to support it. Often times, when the case is turned over by the police, to the State, they have an attorney look over the facts to determine the best way to file/charge the defendant. If something comes to light at a later time or something was over looked, a charge could be added or even amended, if needed. If you were just charged with speeding and a DUI, there is no reason for any additional charges to be added, unless they discover something, which was not know at the time.

If they wanted to they may find this to be reckless but that is a lesser offense then the DUI. The DUI is the most serious, so that is why they may not charge you with a lesser crime.
