First Offense OVI / DUI Reduced

A gentleman in his early 30s was involved in an accident on private property. The police were called. He was asked to perform the roadside field sobriety tests and did. At the end of the encounter, the young union employee was charged with first offense OVI / DUI in Delaware County Municipal Court. He was asked to submit to a breath test and refused. He was then also placed under a one year administrative license suspension.

The young man knew that he did not want a first offense OVI / DUI conviction on his record. He was referred through a friend to attorney Dan Sabol. After speaking with attorney Sabol, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent him on the case.

Attorney Sabol requested all of the police reports and was able to get his client limited driving privileges so he was able to get back and forth to work. After reviewing the police reports, attorney Sabol recognized some evidentiary issues with the case. These issues were addressed with the prosecutor at his client’s pre-trial.

After a number of additional court dates, the prosecutor agreed to reduce the first offense OVI / DUI charge to a lesser Reckless Operation charge. The reckless operation charge is a non-alcohol related traffic offense. This achieved our client’s goal of keeping the OVI / DUI charge off his record and he resolved his case at that time.
