Musician’s OVI / DUI Charge Reduced to Reckless Operation

A musician was on his way home when he was pulled over by the Columbus Police Department for a moving violation. He was then asked if he had been drinking and answered affirmatively. He was then asked to step out of his vehicle and perform the roadside field sobriety tests. He complied. After performing the tests, he was arrested and charged with a first offense OVI / DUI. His case was scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

This young man was greatly concerned about his situation. Having never had anything more than a speeding ticket, this gentleman had no idea of what would become of him. He was very concerned about losing his license, as he would not be able to get back and forth to his music gigs and lessons.

This gentleman needed an OVI lawyer and was referred to the Columbus Criminal Defense team by a friend. He spoke with attorney Ben Luftman, who initially answered all of his questions. Attorney Dan Sabol represented the gentleman and reviewed all of the police reports. Ultimately, attorney Luftman was able to negotiate an amendment of the OVI / DUI charge to a lesser charge of reckless operation.

As a result of the reckless operation resolution, the musician’s license did not get suspended; he only had to pay a fine and was not given any probation.
