OVI / DUI Reduced to Reckless Operation

A gentleman in his mid-thirties was pulled over while driving for a headlight violation by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper. He was asked if he had been drinking and said he had. He was asked to step out of his vehicle and perform the roadside field sobriety tests. He did. After completing the roadside field sobriety tests, he was arrested and charged with a first offense OVI / DUI. His case was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Having an OVI / DUI conviction on his record was something this gentleman was very keen to avoid. He was concerned about the impact it would have on his ability to get jobs in the future and had done a great deal of research online about the other potential problems a conviction would bring. Given his concerns, he contacted the Columbus Criminal Defense team to represent him on the case.

Franklin County DUI attorney Dan Sabol represented the client on his case. Reviewing the police reports, alcohol influence report and DVD, attorney Sabol crafted a legal argument on the client’s behalf. Through multiple court dates, he continued to press the evidentiary issues with the prosecutor. Ultimately, the prosecutor agreed to lessen the charge to a reckless operation. The reckless operation charge is a non-alcohol related traffic offenses.

The resolution accomplished our client’s goal of keeping the OVI / DUI off his record.
