Fairfield OVI Charge Reduced to Underage Consumption

In Fairfield, Ohio a 19-year-old woman and active member of the U.S. National Guard was recently pulled over and after a field sobriety test, submitted to a breathalyzer test. The young lady reportedly had a .054 BAC, which is above the legal limit of.02 for someone under 21-years-old, so she was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI). The woman was very worried about the impact this OVI could have on her, including possible jail time, fines, and the suspension of her driving privileges; therefore, she looked for attorneys with extensive Fairfield OVI experience to help resolve this situation and came upon Luftman, Heck & Associates.

Attorney Dan Sabol agreed to represent the young woman and was intent on finding an avenue for his client to avoid the serious impact an OVI conviction would cause her. During a pre-trial hearing that questioned the officer’s probable cause to arrest his client, attorney O’Meara cross-examined the arresting officer, where the officer conceded that he could not accurately confirm the woman was impaired and he had made some errors while administering his client’s field sobriety tests. As a result of these irregularities, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the OVI charge in favor of his client pleading to the much less severe offense of underage consumption of alcohol. Due to the young lady’s wise decision to retain attorney Dan Sabol, she was effectively spared from a lingering OVI conviction, an outstanding outcome based on the original circumstances of the case.
