The Columbus Criminal Defense team takes a two-pronged approach to all disorderly conduct while intoxicated cases. First and foremost, we will figure out what mistakes the police made and what legal issues can be raised on your behalf.
We do this by requesting discovery from the prosecutor. The discovery will generally consist of police reports, additional investigative notes and potentially a lab analysis of the alcohol. As our client, you will receive a copy of everything received from the prosecutor for your review
Based on the legal weaknesses in the State of Ohio’s case and any other mitigating factors, we will negotiate the best possible plea available with the prosecutor for you to consider in resolving your case.
If your case cannot be resolved satisfactorily with a plea, it would then proceed to a motion hearing (a hearing where the judge issues a ruling on an evidentiary issue) or a trial to the judge or jury, depending on the circumstances.
The second approach taken by the Columbus Criminal Defense team is to identify whether you have an alcohol or substance abuse problem and if there are treatment programs available in lieu of jail or a conviction on your case.
For nearly ten years, the Columbus Criminal Defense team has successfully represented clients on disorderly conduct while intoxicated offenses. That extensive previous experience will enable us to better help you.
