HELLO! Are you people not paying attention? If you read the story, clearly his "sweatheart" deal still lands him a conviction in the end.

If he reoffends in the future, a Neg Driving conviction on the record will make his DUI consequences even more substantial. A dismissal due to Deferred Prosecution essentially wipes that DUI charge clean with no harsher consequences should he reoffend.

This kind of thing is more common than you think. If you want more hard line justice, then guess what - you have to vote for it and then not whine when your taxes are raised to pay for it.
