Is there a difference between a DUI and a Reckless Driving Charge?

I have had clients ask me if there is any difference between the DUI they were arrested for and an offer to resolve the case with a plea to a reckless driving.  The answer is yes there is a big difference.   For one you wont have a DUI on your driving record and employers and insurance companies will view a reckless driving differently than they would a DUI.   Additionally there is typically no drivers license suspension with a reckless driving and the penalties could be less.  

If you get the option to have your DUI reduced to a reckless driving and there is a chance that by going to trial you could get convicted and have a DUI on your record I would recommend that you accept the plea to the reckless driving.
