If you are charged with a DUI in Tacoma or Pierce County, its very important to know the difference between a Reckless Driving and a DUI. A successful DUI attorney will be able to get your DUI charge reduced to a lower charge such as a Reckless Driving. A DUI carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 1 day in jail, a mandatory fine, a mandatory license suspension of at least 90 days and ignition interlock for 1 year. A Reckless Driving has a mandatory 30 day license suspension, but none of the other mandatory punishments required by a DUI conviction.
