It is possible that her lawyer and the prosecutor can make a deal to reduce the charges. It will not happen without prosecutor consent, or it could happen at a trial. The best things to ask for are careless driving or impeding traffic, but the prosecutor might insist on impaired or reckless driving.

Technical errors usually have zero impact on criminal cases because the officer can amend things or explain them in court. The only way to examine all of her defenses and options will be to meet with and hire a local defense attorney. If you are in metro Detroit, give me a call to discuss the issues.
