My wife received a DWI. If we can show that there were extenuating circumstances, is there a chance she won't be convicted?

My wife received a DWI due to a small accident she had while turning into our apartment complex at around 8am.  She had driven to get gas and then returned home, and she hit and damaged the gate at the entry to the apartments. The person working in the office called the police, my wife was given a blood test at the scene and then issued a DWI and taken to jail. She had not had wine since around midnight, but also had taken some sleeping pills. She wasn’t able to sleep so at some point in the morning she also took a tranquilizer that she was prescribed. The mixture of these things must have caused an issue, even though hours had passed. She had not had anything to drink for at least 8 hours, and only a couple of glasses of wine before that.  Is there a chance that she may not be convicted since this is her first offense?  (she doesn’t have any tickets for any type of violation, and does not have a history of tickets, either; she also has 2 young children that she has to drive to school every day, and she is a teacher as well; we hope there is a chance of leniency but don’t know if this is even a possibility?)
