Driving under the Influence of Alcohol:  No conviction

On the day of the trial, the arresting officer and two witnesses were present to testify on behalf of the State.

Fortunately for his client, Mr. Hoffmann was thoroughly prepared.  He knew the law, he was ready to try the case, and he negotiated aggressively.  Mr. Hoffmann negotiated a plea agreement pursuant to which all charges were dropped except negligent driving.  For that charge, the client received a one-day probation before judgment and fines and costs totaling $350.  Under Maryland law, there was no conviction for any charges.
