First Offense OVI Reduced on the Eve of Trial

Our client is a single father raising his teenage girl alone.  He left work early on a Friday to pick her up from school.  They went to the gym together and then enjoyed a nice dinner.  After she went to bed for the evening, he met a couple of friends to watch a basketball game.  On the way home, he was pulled over for an alleged marked lanes violation.

While he attempted to cooperate, it was evident the trooper was not giving him the benefit of the doubt.  His frustrations became clear and finally the trooper arrested him for a first offense OVI and took him to jail.  Rather than release him on a summons (as is the case in nearly all first offense OVI cases), the trooper made him spend the night in jail.

Extremely frustrated, he contacted Chase Mallory for help.  Given the less than amicable relationship between the trooper and client, no plea offers were made for the first offense OVI.  Chase Mallory litigated the case that lasted over 8 months.  Finally, on the eve of trial, the prosecutor came to terms with the lack of evidence and offered a reduction.  Our client avoided the first offense OVI conviction and the license suspension was terminated.
