Franklin County OVI Reduced to Physical Control

After a night out on a party bus, our client unsuccessfully attempted making her own way home. She was pulled over by a state trooper after a minor traffic violation. The trooper, smelling the strong odor of alcohol, had her exit the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests.

Her anxiety was getting the best of her as she thought about her children and her career as a mortgage broker while attempting to perform the standardized field sobriety tests. After a poor performance, the trooper placed the handcuffs on her and took her to the station for OVI breath testing. She refused based on prior advice.

Chase Mallory entered his appearance and filed a not guilty plea. Months later, a cruiser DVD was still not available. After filing a motion to suppress and a motion to compel the production of the DVD, the prosecuting attorney advised that no DVD existed. However, all cruisers operated by state troopers in Ohio are equipped with dash cam. After numerous continuances and attempts to locate the video, the prosecutor agreed to reduce the Franklin County OVI to a Physical Control.

Our client was able to salvage her license, avoid a Franklin County OVI conviction, and even avoid any points on her license.
