A professional in her mid- thirties found herself in an extremely precarious situation. She crashed her vehicle and was taken to the hospital. At the hospital, a blood test was taken. After speaking with a Columbus Police Department Officer at the hospital, she was charged with an OVI / DUI. Depending on the result of her blood test, additional OVI / DUI charges could be filed. Her case was then scheduled for arraignment.
Not knowing the court process, she sought a referral from a friend. Her friend told her to contact attorney Ben Luftman to discuss her situation. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent her on the case.
While representing her, the results of the blood test came back. The level was well above the .170 High Test legal limit. If the prosecutor’s office were to charge her, she would be facing mandatory jail time, as well as mandatory yellow plates on her vehicle. Attorney Sabol was able to negotiate with the prosecutor to not file the High Test OVI / DUI charge against our client and in exchange she agreed to plead guilty to the impaired first offense OVI / DUI charge.
The result kept our client from going to jail and from having to face the embarrassment of having special yellow plates on her vehicle for six months or more.
