OVI / DUI Charge Reduced to Physical Control

After a night out with some friends a gentleman in his mid-forties was driving home and was pulled over by a Grove City Police Department Officer due to one of the lights on his vehicle being out. He was asked if he had been drinking and indicated he had. He was asked to step out of his vehicle and perform the roadside field sobriety tests. He complied. After completing the field sobriety tests, he was arrested and charged with first offense OVI / DUI. He was then transported to the Grove City Police Station and asked to take a breath test. He refused. His case was then scheduled for arraignment in Grove City Mayor’s Court.

Having never faced a charge like this and not knowing what to do, the gentleman contacted the Columbus Criminal Defense team for advice. After speaking with attorney Ben Luftman, the team was hired to represent him on the case.

Initially, we were able to get a stay of his administrative license suspension. This allowed him to continue to maintain his job and also drive his mother to and from medical appointments, both were priorities.

Columbus OVI/DUI attorneys Dan Sabol and attorney Chase Mallory represented our client over multiple court dates. Ultimately, they were able to negotiate a resolution where the OVI / DUI charge was amended to a lesser charge of Physical Control, a non- moving violation. Additionally, attorneys Sabol and Mallory were able to negotiate no further license suspension.
