Attorney Jared Thompson Comments on Fatal Highway Crash
Local criminal defense attorney Jared Thompson, who is not working on this
case but has worked similar cases in the past, says wet reckless driving
is a lesser charge than a DUI and doesn't result in a suspended license.

some measurable amount of alcohol. It doesn't require impairment and
it doesn't require a certain blood alcohol. It just says alcohol was
in the system and the person drove in a certain manner," said Thompson.
