Tough DWI case

Potential new client called last night, ~ 10 pm. My answering serviced texted me and I called and spoke with the father.

The kid had rear-ended someone and blew a 0.20 BAC on the breathalyzer. That's pretty high. To make things worse, the kid had a DWAI 3 years ago. Short story - his license will be revoked for 6 months minimum. They're having a lot of trouble accepting the reality of this.

DWI laws are too strict, but 0.20 BAC is high enough that I think it's a problem. The penalties for DWI are out of proportion to the offense, but that's the world we live in.

We'll see how it works out.
