Bellefontaine Man Sees Second Ohio OVI And Other Charges Reduced

When an army veteran and new father’s ill-conceived joyride down a ski slope in Bellefontaine, Ohio ended with serious legal charges, he reached out to the lawyers at Luftman, Heck & Associates for help. Apparently, after he lost control of his car and crashed, officers arrived and charged him with an OVI along with resisting arrest and criminal trespassing. The man’s situation was further complicated by having a prior OVI conviction on his record because the penalty for a second Ohio OVI would now be enhanced to a minimum of 20 days behind bars in addition to any consequences for his other charges. The man obviously wanted to avoid any significant incarceration and retained the skilled criminal defense attorney Chase Mallory.

Attorney Mallory was unwavering in his pursuit to reduce the penalty for his client and began negotiating with the prosecutor. It became apparent there were several issues with the implementation of the man’s field sobriety and breath tests; therefore, attorney Mallory effectively convinced the prosecution to reduce the OVI offense to reckless driving. Additionally, all the parties involved agreed to a plea agreement that included a five-day jail sentence to cover the resisting arrest and reckless driving charges, which spared him the lengthy sentence he would have otherwise faced.
