The Columbus Criminal Defense team is often called upon to represent individuals charged with OVI / DUI offenses throughout the state of Ohio. To date, we have represented clients in 38 Ohio counties charged with an OVI / DUI offense.
Recently, Attorney Ben Luftman received a request for an OVI / DUI consultation from an individual who had been charged with an out of court OVI / DUI offense where he had been stopped by a sheriff’s deputy for an equipment violation and taken the roadside field sobriety tests. After performing the tests, he was arrested and charged with a first offense OVI / DUI. He was then asked to take a breath test and the result was under the .08 Ohio legal limit.
Legally, a person can still be too impaired to drive their vehicle even if they test under the legal limit. The Sheriff’s Deputy felt this was the case and the driver was scheduled for an arraignment in his local county court, where he entered a not guilty plea.
After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent him on the OVI / DUI case. Attorney Luftman reviewed the discovery and discussed the issues with an associate prosecutor at the pre-trial. The prosecutor was reluctant to dismiss the OVI / DUI case as attorney Luftman requested. Attorney Luftman then set the case for a suppression hearing and let the prosecutor know that he was happy to conduct a jury trial as well.
One week before the suppression hearing, a motion to dismiss the OVI / DUI case in its entirety was received from the prosecutor’s office.
