A “Wet reckless” is not a charge in and of itself. It is a name given to a common DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge reduction usually obtained through a plea deal.
There are certain advantages in obtaining a “wet reckless” rather than a DUI, which include, but are not limited to, a shorter potential jail sentence, lower fines, a shorter span in which to attend DUI school, and not receiving a DUI on the criminal record.
The chief disadvantage of a wet reckless conviction is that it counts as a priorable offense, meaning that the defendant will be considered a repeat offender if he or she is convicted of a DUI within the following 10 years after obtaining a wet reckless.
