Graduate Student Involved In Accident Avoids An OVI / DUI Conviction After Blowing .14 BAC

A 24-year-old straight-A graduate student found himself charged with an OVI after he rear-ended another individual.  After his arrest, our client submitted a sample of his breath which registered a .14 BAC, and he was subsequently charged with an additional OVI “per se” offense.  In addition to filing a motion to suppress the results of the BAC and field sobriety tests, Columbus, Ohio OVI lawyer Dan Sabol made it a point to stress our clients positive attributes and previous successes to the prosecutor.  The threat of litigation combined with our clients mitigating circumstances convinced the prosecutor to amend the OVI to the non-alcohol related offense of reckless operation.  Further, our client was not required to complete a driver intervention program or serve a drivers rights suspension ordered by the court—he was simply given a fine and a period of probation.
