Houston criminal lawyer Jim Sullivanrepresented a woman in the 232nd Criminal District Court charged with the state jail felony of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) with a Child Passenger.  His client was willing to take a felony probation, however based on her difficult living situation, lack of transportation and out of county commute, Jim Sullivan knew that she would be setting herself up for getting her felony probation revoked and then end up going to the state jail for 6 months to 2 years.  She was willing to do a short jail sentence instead.  Sullivan investigated the evidence against his client, including reviewing the video of the on scene Field Sobriety Testing (FST) and the physical area of where the testing occurred among other things.  Based on his evaluation, his client was willing to risk a trial to get a better result.  When Jim Sullivan was going to reset the case for trial, the State agreed to reduce the case to a class B misdemeanor DWI with 30 days in jail as a condition.  Having already served 3 days in jail, his client only had to serve 12 more, but did not have to pay court costs, a fine or the many additional fees that probationers are required to pay.
