Our client, a housewife with no prior criminal record, was pulled over by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper after they observed a marked lanes violation. She was then asked to step out of her vehicle and take the roadside field sobriety tests. After failing the field sobriety tests, she was arrested and charged with an OVI / DUI. She was then asked to submit to a urine test. She complied. The urine test result was above the .238 high test limit for urine. She was then charged with an OVI / DUI high concentration charge.
If convicted, our client was facing mandatory jail time, as well as a mandatory requirement to have the yellow plates on her vehicle. The thought of going to jail was understandably terrifying for our client, who in over thirty years of driving had never been previously charged with anything more serious than a traffic ticket.
Columbus Criminal Defense team attorneys Ben Luftman and Dan Sabol represented her on the case. Reviewing all of the evidence specifically that related to the urine test itself, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate a dismissal of the high test charge. The result meant our client would not have to go to jail and would not have to have the yellow plates on her vehicle. Additionally, attorney Luftman was able to convince the sentencing judge to not require our client to report to a probation officer.
