.130 OVI / DUI Breath Test Reduced to Reckless Operation

A young man was stopped by a Fairfield County Sheriff and was asked if he had been drinking. He admitted to drinking and was then asked to exit his vehicle and perform the roadside field sobriety tests. He again complied. After performing the roadside field sobriety tests, the young man was arrested for a first offense OVI / DUI. He was then taken back to the station and asked to submit to a breath test. He again complied and the result was a .130.  He was charged with an additional OVI / DUI breath test above the legal limit. His case was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

As a young college student, interested in a professional career, the prospect of an OVI / DUI conviction was something to be avoided at all costs. He was referred to attorney Ben Luftman from a previous client.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented the young man on his case. Attorney Sabol kept negotiating on the client’s behalf and ultimately was able to convince the prosecutor to reduce the charge to a lesser non-alcohol related reckless operation offense.

The reckless operation reduction will allow this student to keep an OVI / DUI conviction off his record and allow him to continue his studies, confident that he will have a better opportunity to gain employment after graduation.
