Ohio OVI Reduced To Reckless Operation

In Columbus, the skilled Ohio OVI defense attorney Dan Sabol recently aided a man after a car crash, when he found himself charged with an OVI and leaving the scene of an accident. The man knew that based on the serious nature of these offenses if he was convicted he would likely face jail time and long-lasting restrictions on his ability to drive. Therefore, he began looking for capable legal counsel and chose the Ohio criminal defense attorneys at Luftman, Heck & Associates to fight the case.

Once he reviewed all the available evidence and by utilizing his considerable OVI experience, attorney Sabol drafted and filed motions with the court. These motions asserted that the field sobriety tests that the police administered after the crash were not properly conducted and as a result, they did not have the necessary probable cause to charge his client. Attorney Sabol effectively leveraged these motions in his negotiations with the prosecution and convinced the state to completely dismiss the fleeing the scene of an accident charge and reduce the OVI to a non-alcohol or drug related charge of reckless operation. By choosing to fight the charges with a proficient OVI attorney, the client only needed to serve a 12-month license suspension, reimburse the other affected driver for their insurance deductible, and attend a three-day driver intervention program, which was considerably less severe than the penalties he originally faced.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case
