Operating a vehicle while intoxicated, whether it be under alcohol or an illegal substance, is a common offense seen at Luftman, Heck & Associates. Recently, a graduate of Ohio University was charged with an OVI. The 25-year-old consultant was doing a business presentation at the university. As he was driving home, his passenger was drinking with an open container in the car and he too had a few drinks prior to leaving. Our client was pulled over for speeding and was asked to complete field sobriety tests, of which he failed. The man refused a breathalyzer test and was arrested.
At this point, the man hired Columbus criminal defense attorney Chase Mallory for legal assistance. Our client did not want to plead guilty to the OVI. Mallory, having a strong background and emphasis in OVI defenses, filed a motion to suppress. The field sobriety tests were suppressed and therefore were not allowed to be used as evidence. The case was heard in Fairfield County – an area notoriously known for being tough on OVI offenders. Prior to trial, we had a settlement conference and the OVI charge against our client was dismissed. Our client pled guilty to the speeding ticket and does not have an OVI on his record.
