Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you already had one reduced back in 2010, there is going to need to be a legal basis, for it to happen again. By that, I mean your attorney will need and want to work the case an see if you have any defenses and/or if the State has enough evidence, to provide the charge against you beyond a reasonable doubt. If the State gave you a break one and reduced this they are not simply going to do it again unless there is a basis for it.

What sort of basis is exceptable in this situation?
Expert:  LegalKnowledge replied 6 months ago.

The State is going to need a legal basis. As I shared, if there are defenses you have, which can make them have problems proving their case, they may reduce or amend the charge, to get something, instead of nothing. Same goes for a weak case they may have.
