Man In Bellefontaine Remains Employed After OVI Offence Is Reduced

In Bellefontaine, OH a 26-year-old man was recently pulled over for speeding. After smelling alcohol, the police administered a field sobriety test and arrested him for operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI). He admitted to drinking two beers and a breath test showed his BAC to be .11. The young man had just moved to the area from Pennsylvania to work as a scientist in the farming industry and was understandably nervous about the negative consequences an OVI offence would create with his employer, so he contacted Luftman, Heck & Associates for legal representation.

Attorney Chase Mallory immediately began working on his client’s behalf, waived his initial appearance, and obtained limited driving privileges for him to commute to work. Chase Mallory was able to work with his client’s employer and their insurance provider to determine what type of violation would be acceptable in place of an OVI offence. Then he began filing motions to suppress the evidence the police collected based on unreliable results produced by the type of breathalyzer the police used. Using these motions as leverage, attorney Mallory successfully negotiated the OVI offence amended to a 4th-degree misdemeanor for reckless operation with a six-month license suspension that included work-related privileges, allowing our client to keep his job and move on with his life.
