A young lady in her mid-twenties was stopped for a marked lanes violation by a Columbus Police Department. After running her license, it was determined that she was driving under suspension. The officer detected an odor of alcohol and asked her if she had been drinking. She admitted she had. She was then asked to step out of her car and perform the roadside field sobriety tests. She complied. After completing the roadside tests, she was arrested and charged with first offense OVI / DUI. Her arraignment was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.
Her car was searched after she was arrested and she was charged with open container. She was then taken back to the Columbus Police Department and asked to submit to a breath test. She took the test and tested above the .170 high test legal limit.
If convicted of the OVI / DUI high test charge, this young lady was facing mandatory jail time and mandatory yellow plates on her vehicle. She was incredibly frightened. Given these circumstances, she turned to the Columbus Criminal Defense team for help.
Attorney Dan Sabol represented her on her cases. After reviewing the police reports and alcohol influence report, he was able to negotiate a dismissal of the OVI / DUI high test charge, as well as the open container charge. This resolution kept our client from going to jail, kept the yellow plates of her vehicle and she avoided a criminal conviction on her record as well.
