Get I Get My DUI Charge Reduced in Nevada?


A DUI is a serious offense in Nevada. Not only does getting convicted lead to serious penalties like driver’s license suspension, fines, and even jail time, but it also results in a criminal record that can negatively affect your life post-conviction.

You may be wondering if it is possible to get a DUI charge reduced to a lesser charge. While the answer is “yes,” getting a DUI charge reduced is much harder to accomplish compared to other criminal cases.

According to state law, prosecutors can reduce or drop DUI charges if the charge is not backed by probable cause or there is insufficient evidence in the case. In other words, prosecutors are required to pursue DUI convictions unless they cannot prove their case.

However, if one of these circumstances applies to your case, your DUI charge could be reduced to reckless driving. Although a reckless driving conviction in Nevada carries similar penalties as DUI such as fines and jail time, it is not punishable by a mandatory driver’s license suspension. Additionally, having a reckless driving charge carries significantly less weight than a DUI charge, and it is easier to get sealed.

If you have been arrested for a DUI in Reno, you still have a chance to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you. At the Law Office of Kenneth A. Stover, we can thoroughly investigate your case, collect evidence related to your case, and determine if there are any inaccuracies or issues in the prosecution's argument against you.

Common issues in a DUI case include:

  1. If the police established reasonable suspicion to make a legal traffic stop

  2. If the police followed protocol when administering a field sobriety test

  3. If the police properly calibrated the breath test device and use it correctly

  4. If the defendant is diagnosed with a condition that may lead to inaccurate test results

  5. If the arresting officer is available to provide testimony to the court

  6. If there are any credible eyewitnesses

  7. If there are any recordings of the incident

If one or more of the issues mentioned above is true, Attorney Ken Stover can help you get your charges/penalties reduced or your entire case dismissed. Get more than two decades of legal experience on your side immediately!
