Oil and Gas Worker Avoids 2nd OVI

Eastern Ohio has become the temporary home for thousands of workers in the oil and gas industry. Oftentimes, these folks find themselves facing legal troubles while a thousand miles from home. We have had the opportunity to help numerous people in this situation facing OVIs and other criminal offenses.

Our client, a young man from Louisiana, was pulled over at 1 am after a local officer witnessed what he considered to be reckless driving. Smelling a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage, the officer demanded that our client step out of the vehicle and perform standardized field sobriety tests. After performing poorly on these tests, he was placed under arrest and charged with OVI. He also submitted to a breath test in excess of the legal limit.

After several pretrials, Chase Mallory filed a motion to suppress evidence. Shortly thereafter, the prosecuting attorney agreed to amend the OVI to a reckless operation upon the completion of a three day driver intervention program. Our client avoided an OVI and received no court ordered license suspension.
