Inaccurate Drug Testing Results In OVID ReductionCategories: Alcohol Offenses, Criminal Defense, Drug Offenses, OVI/DUI
If you are ever charged with a crime in Ohio, it is imperative to find a knowledgeable defense attorney to protect your rights and advocate for the best possible result. This advice recently aided a young man after a car accident resulted in significant legal trouble. When police responded to the crash, they found the young man in question passed out behind the wheel and suspected that he was under the influence. The officer’s collected a sample to analyze and when it tested positive for marijuana metabolite, the man found himself charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs, or OVID. Since the penalties for driving under the influence of drugs are the same as for driving under the influence of alcohol, the man was now faced with potential jail time, license suspension, probation, and considerable fines he reached out to the criminal defense team at Luftman, Heck & Associates based on their extensive experience with OVI and drug-related cases.
The attorneys at LHA took the case and started reviewing the facts of the case and all the relevant evidence. After thoroughly reviewing these materials, it was evident that the sample that was collected did not meet the necessary standard for an accurate test. By utilizing this fact, the attorneys at LHA successfully negotiated for the prosecution to adjust the charges against his client to a more reasonable minor reckless operation misdemeanor. This offense would not include any jail time, license suspension, or probation. In fact, after paying a small fine, this young man would be free of any further concern.
