Banker’s OVI / DUI and Marijuana Convictions Avoided

A young banking associate was dealing with a number of personal issues going on in her life. She chose to deal with them in a less than ideal manner and was stopped one recent evening by a Worthington Police Department Officer for a moving violation. She was asked if and admitted to drinking. She was then asked to perform the roadside field sobriety tests. After, she was arrested and charged with first offense OVI / DUI. After she was arrested marijuana and paraphernalia was found and she was additionally charged with marijuana possession  and drug paraphernalia. She was transported back to the Worthington Police Station and asked to submit to a breath test. She refused. Her case was then scheduled for arraignment in Worthington Mayor’s Court.

This young professional was extremely scared of the situation she now faced. She had otherwise lived a stellar life and her future employment opportunities were in danger depending on the outcome of the cases. After doing a great deal of internet research on hiring an OVI / DUI attorney, she contacted attorney Ben Luftman and after discussing the matter, hired him to represent her on the cases.

Attorney Luftman went to her arraignment and was able to secure a stay of her administrative license suspension. With the stay, our client was able to get her full license back while her case was pending and continue to drive back and forth to work.

After reviewing all of the police reports and DVD and attending multiple court dates on his client’s behalf, attorney Luftman was able to negotiate the dismissal of both the marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia charges. Additionally, attorney Luftman was able to negotiate the amendment of the OVI / DUI charge to a lesser non-alcohol related charge of reckless operation. This resolution accomplished all of his client’s objectives in both cases and could possibly have a tremendous impact on her future. She left Worthington Mayor’s Court no doubt relieved.
