OVI / DUI Charge Nets Not Guilty Verdict

The Columbus Criminal Defense team is often hired to represent people charged with OVI / DUI offenses outside of central Ohio. We are often retained to litigate cases in counties where they do not offer to reduce charges. One such case went through the entire process and recently ended with a jury trial.

A young man was in town visiting his parents and was driving home one evening this winter. His car slid off the road. A passerby called the police. After the talking with the driver, he was arrested and charged with first offense OVI / DUI. He was then transported to the police department and asked to perform the roadside field sobriety tests. The young man agreed and performed the tests.

The driver was then asked to perform a breath test and refused. As a result, he received a one-year administrative license suspension. His license was taken from him. His case was then scheduled for arraignment.

After researching the process of hiring an OVI / DUI attorney, the gentleman called and spoke with attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent him on the case.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented the young man on his case. As expected, the local prosecutor declined to make an offer to reduce the OVI / DUI charge to a lesser offense. Ultimately, attorney Sabol conducted a suppression hearing and then completed a jury trial. After deliberating for an hour, the jury returned a not guilty verdict. Our client was incredibly appreciative of attorney Sabol’s work on his behalf.
