Businesswoman’s OVI / DUI Charge Dismissed

A woman in town on business was involved in a minor traffic accident. She was then transported to a local hospital. After the accident, an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper was dispatched to take a report. While at the hospital, the trooper noted an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. The trooper asked her if she would provide a blood sample. She refused. She was then placed under arrest for a first offense OVI / DUI. She was placed under a one year administrative license suspension. Her case was then scheduled for arraignment in Delaware County Municipal Court.

Having never been charged with more than a speeding ticket, the businesswoman was scared and did not know where to turn. An OVI / DUI conviction could cause her considerable harm in her business career. She began researching hiring an OVI / DUI attorney and spoke to a number of attorneys. After speaking with attorney Ben Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent her on the case.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client on her case. Attorney Sabol reviewed all of the reports and there were a number of potential evidentiary issues with the case. While at the pretrial, attorney Sabol brought these issues to the attention of the prosecuting attorney. The prosecuting attorney agreed and offered to dismiss the OVI / DUI charge for a plea to the accompanying minor traffic violation. Our client happily accepted this offer, returned to Ohio and resolved her case.
